D link router stuck on validating identity
The drivers are all up to date, and everything matches, its just that when I try to connect, the pc doesn't ask for a wep password.I had to open the advance properties and put the wep password there.A Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the network name being broadcasted by your TP-Link wireless router. If the Problem is caused by your laptop, please call the support of your laptop. If you have connected to various wireless networks before, your computer may have problems connecting wirelessly, especially when the wireless network name (SSID) is the same with the previous ones you have connected to.This is where your computer or wireless device connects to become part of your wireless network. Check whether the laptop has a WIFI button, make sure the WIFI is on. Removing wireless network profiles on your computer may improve your wireless connectivity to your current wireless network. If you are not sure, please login the management page to double check.
Let your router do pppoe and routing, it's really designed for that. It seems that currently, your computer is trying to create a pppoe session (which involves logging in, validating identity etc). Change the wireless settings to create a new wireless ssid that you have not used before.
The SSID can be customized not only to make it easy for you to identify the name of your network but for security reasons as well. Note: For different operating system, there might be sometimes problem to connect the wireless.
Try a different laptop to see whether it has the same problem. Once your computer is in range with the wireless network profile that is saved on your computer, it will automatically attempt to connect to that wireless network you have previously connected to.
When try to connect the wifi, it always shows “waiting for the network …”, and it disappears after you entering the security key.
Please check the Service Pack of your laptop to see whether it’s SP1 、 SP2 or SP3 ( Click on Start, find my computer, right click on my computer and choose properties) SP1 can support WEP ony; SP2 can support WEP 、 WPA-PSK(WPA-personal); SP3 can support WEP 、 WPA-PSK （ WPA-personal ） 、 WPA2-PSK （ WPA2-personal ） Please make sure of the SP version of your laptop and set the corresponding security type. Once connected to the wifi, it shows “Validating identity” （ Windows cannot find a certificate to log you on the network ） Please try to cancel the authentication by click Here 4. Try to change your SSID and channel on the router’s configuration page.
