Internet problem validating identity
My laptop the Authentication tab wasnt even there for me to mess with.Everything came pre-loaded on the laptop so Im not sure why the Authentication tab wasnt there.The connection may be trying to use a wireless connection.Try disabling any wireless connections on your computer. Selected my network and choose "change order of preferred networks ..." 4.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.
EAP type was Smart Card or other certificate and Authenticate as computer when computer information is available was checked.I moved the selection tab to WPA2 only and keep the rest the same and no luck. Do you have the same security setting, router name, and IP address on the router?So I guess I will leave the IEEE 802.1x Authentication disabled then.Thanks When you install the new DIR-655 router, you didn't copy the security setting from the old router.
I will check the router and see if the WPS and/or MAC filtering are enabled.
