Wireless router says validating identity
I never mess with those settings, obviously I know nothing about the networking LOL.My laptop the Authentication tab wasnt even there for me to mess with.It looks like you are using WPA-EAP on your computer.unless you are running into the initial problem that most older hardware had. You may need to do a firmware upgrade on your device that is connecting to the router. Firstly you can not use WPA, you can use WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK or WEP.WPA2 is superior as it doesn't suffer from the recently discovered flaw with WPA that allows limited cracking, though it's not a method to actually allow someone to connect. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.It turns out that I was using a specified DNS server when I set up a static IP address for port forwarding for my u Torrent connection.EAP type was Smart Card or other certificate and Authenticate as computer when computer information is available was checked.
So I guess I will leave the IEEE 802.1x Authentication disabled then.Secondly you can change the SSID to what you want, and the channel to 1 or 11.Then if your operating system is windowsxp please follow the attachment to have a try.(they sent me a file attachment with the email) If your operating system is vista please refer to https://When setting up WPA you will see the option for either a radius server (Enterprise, and you see this in the corporate environment) or a place to enter a passphrase (Pre Shared Key, PSK).As long as you use the same options for both, you should be fine. WPA-TKIP or WPA-PSK is typically the names for personal WPA. My problem was not actually answered by the TP-LINK technical support staff.
