Validating identity belkin
I never really mess with those, I left them at the default settings but will check.
Thanks When you install the new DIR-655 router, you didn't copy the security setting from the old router.
Your computers still have the old security setting and router name on it.
Do you have the same security setting, router name, and IP address on the router?The computers have to match the new setting with the router. HOw do I reset the settings of the computers to match the new router? IEEE 802.1X is the standard which defines authentication against a RADIUS server.Reset or change the security settings on the two wired computers. For right now I just disabled (unchecked) "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication for this network" on both wired computers. But now by doing so, would it do any harm to my network? If you have a home network, it's unlikely that you have a RADIUS server - so that's OK.Note: IEEE 802.1X security is the highest of those available. Because the key is not shared - it's issued by the server, and is unique to your machine. While both WPA2 and WPA security are excellent, their weakness is that the key is shared between all systems on the network.
That is the reason all the sudden "validating identity" show up on the computers.Just copy the DIR-655 router name, security password..to the computers wireless adapter should fix the in to the router with the computer that can, you know 192.168.0.1, go to advanced/network filter, check that MAC filtering is disabled, the go to WIFI protected setup, check that it is disabled, usually the DIR-655 has at least one of them enabled by default Ummm, my wireless laptop never had problem with validating identity only 2 wired computers are should validating identity.
