Are you receiving an endless "Validating Identity" connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.In a few simple steps you can bypass Windows Validation, and the resulting "Limited or No Connectivity" issue on an encrypted connection.I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful! So then I tried to connect from my desktop computer that has a wireless USB adapter attached to it and I ended up getting this error message: Fabulous! I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.

The below guide has been tested on MS Windows XP Professional and is based on Windows' default wireless configuration tool (Wireless Zero Configuration).In the next window click on the "Authentication" tab, Make sure "Enable IEEE 802.1x...." checkbox is UN-Checked, the rest of this window should be greyed out.If your network is Encrypted go on to step 6 otherwise Click ok and try to connect to your network again.After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.Here’s how to connect to your wireless router if you are getting this message.
