    Under the wireless networks tab, click add, then type in the name of the current internet you are connecting to, the name of the wireless internet that is, click the authentication tab, and uncheck authenticate as compter when computer information is availiable, then uncheck enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network.

    Hi there,,

    Its pretty simple..When u try to connect it just says validating identity and wont connect to ur w/l network

    This is because there are option called WPS(Wifi protected setup) which is enabled and u need to disable it

    Go to ur router page 192.168.x.1 where x depends on the rtr you use
    on that page disable wps and try connecting again

    also make sure that none of the options are checked in w.l network connection authentication tab of the window.

    Good Luck

    hi ranjithts!

    i was the one who sets up the connection and i intentionally make it WPS for some purposes. my problem is i can connect it through a wired connection but when i use wireless, the status is validating identity. Furthermore, by boardmates can connect to the internet using wireless

    Hmmm in that case i would suggest you to manually add the network once or try restarting the computer and check if it works..
