How to Fix/Disable Validating Identify on Wireless Networks?
I just installed a new wireless router and after entering the wireless SSID and password, I’m stuck at the status “Validating Identity”.
This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.

I had an unsecure network connection so I changed the security settings of my tp-link router from WEP to WAP-TKIP. after that, i changed my network settings to the same WAP-TPIK option. It just says "validating identity" and does not ask for a passkey at all. thanks You want to make sure you are using the same version of WPA on each side.
