Windows xp wireless stuck on validating identity updating flash on older mac
in between the computer icons of connection activity.Why is this the only network connection that does this?I just installed a new Linksys ADSL modem/router at home.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?Is the network setup for just auto IP configuration. Oh and make sure that the mac address of the wireless card on the xp machine has not been excluded in a mac address filter in the router.Edit: since you have just reformatted the xp machine.I usually don't go to these settings as it will usually connect as long as you have the right E. I have made sure that "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication" box unchecked in the Authentication TAB? I think there must be an issue with the router's encryption (WPA) and the USB adapter being able to connect to this encryption.
