Wifi windows xp validating identity

I am not sure what to do next as there seems to be something in the computer that is not set up correctly. Then it asks for my Network authetication and the options are Open, shared, or WPA. I went ahead and used no encryption for my router and then the D Link USB adapter was able to connect.Then it asks for encryption Key and the options are WEP or disabled. I have never seen this before on any of my computers. I am yet to try WEP Encryption with my router to see if that works. On installation, my sons (Vista) machine connected instantly and is running like the clappers. Sly Even if this was working before (on two machines simultaneously?

Wireless Network Connection shows that the laptop is picking up my home wifi network, and shows that it is connected, but continues to say "Validating Identity" and is not allowing me to access wireless services.

- Wireless Network Connection Properties says Connect using: Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection - From there, I select the Wireless Networks tab, and select the name of my home network under the Preferred Networks section, then select Properties - 3 tabs then say Association, Authentication, Connection - Association tab: Network name (SSID) - then, name of my home wifi network Wireless network key Network Authentication: (Open, Shared, WPA, or WPA-PSK) -- I select WPA-PSK Data encryption: (TKIP or AES) -- I select AES Network key --- I enter the password we use on the Netgear wifi server When I hit the "Connect" button to connect to the network, it will say, "Please wait while Windows connects to the network" then after several seconds, it will say that it has connected, but then will sit there with a yellow star above the 5 green bars showing wifi signal strength, and just to the left of the star it says "Validating identity" and will stay that way indefinitely. The little status icon that's supposed to indicate your wireless network status in the bottom right of the computer screen (in the taskbar) shows a computer with a yellow dot moving back and forth beneath it.

I just installed a new Linksys ADSL modem/router at home.

Let your router do pppoe and routing, it's really designed for that. It seems that currently, your computer is trying to create a pppoe session (which involves logging in, validating identity etc). Change the wireless settings to create a new wireless ssid that you have not used before.
