Windows xp wifi connection validating identity

The client settings on the laptop match the IAS settings and the certificate is definately installed.WPA2 is supported as i can connect to WPA2 personal APs. During the connection it flashes that it "connected" for a second then goes to "Validating Identity" which it eventually timesout on.

Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.

in between the computer icons of connection activity.

Why is this the only network connection that does this?

If the box was checked, then that was why you were getting the “unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network” message because Windows is looking for one, but your wireless router is not setup for certificate security. Once I unchecked that box and tried to reconnect to the wireless network, everything worked fine!

Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.

When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.

It says something about windows not finding a certificate.

I have never encountered this with other wireless connections for which I have the password.

Can anyone out there shed some light on this problem?

In this window make sure you are in the "Association" tab.

You will need to enter your encryption information here in order to connect to your network.

By default, XP will re-authenticate with the user credential after the user logs-on (there is no way to do computer-only with XP, I believe).
