Wireless router says validating identity

I can't provide you with a screen shot of how to do this because I don't have access to the Comcast gateway that you are using, or to a setup screen for your unnamed Wi Fi client. She still has the original box that the computer came in along with a bunch of discs, including the Driver Recovery CD.

Since I don't want to make matters worse than they are now, I haven't uninstalled the network card yet.

When I put the CD in the computer, and after getting the Starting installation wizard message, a software setup screen then comes up with Select components.2 boxes with check marks on them. I told her that if we don't get this darn thing resolved before Sunday night, I'll just return it to Comcast and try another one. If the modem and the computer are within reasonable proximity, connect them with an ethernet cable.

If that does not help, then consider uninstalling the Wi Fi netcard.

Also, make sure that you are using WPA(2) Personal (PSK) for both the Comcast gateway, and for the Wi Fi client that you are setting up; don't try to use "WPA-Enterprise" or "802.1X" security because that almost certainly will require resources that you don't have (resources such as a security certificate for that connection).

At the top of the screen, where it says, Choose a wireless network, I get an [endless] Validating identity.

As of recently, she was able to use this computer to connect to a neighbor's/friend's secured wireless netowork and another neighbor's/friend's unsecured wireless network.

As opposed to deletion and reinstalling, via the device manager, I figured I'd give it a try, updating the Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN. After typing in the Network Key that is on the ARRIS modem, lo & behold, I got an [endless] Acquiring network address. This will get your mom on the interent and you can piddle around with the wifi access at some later time. Then find the network name, click on it, then click "Properties"Go to the second tab "Authentication"Unclick the box "Enable 802.1x authentication for this network"That should fix your problem You asked "why wireless"?

Funny thing, I noticed that if I type in any random numbers/letters for other secured networks in the area, the same thing occurs. Well, she only has a laptop and likes to movie around.

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.

error "windows was unable to find certificate to log on to the network" & showing validating identity.
