Trying to connect to a wireless network validating identity
I can now connect to the Network but with no internet capabilities. Comp says: signal: very good SSID: Gonzaga University, speed:54.0-MBps, status:validating identity, address:169.2 .. I am trying to save some money seeing as I'm a college student. Thank you for any help Windows XP Version 5.1 with Service Pack 3.. This means that you will have to disconnect (unplug) the cellular modem (aircard) from the computer and close the cellular connection manager tool provided by your cellular carrier or, disconnect from any LAN (wired Ethernet) or Wi-Fi (wireless) connections before you will be able to connect your computer to the router either by Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi.By default, the wifi SSID will always be the model of the Cradlepoint router separated by a (-) and then the last 3 of the routers MAC address.(It is possible I missed an update, but don't think I did). They are the ones that told me the NIC was too old to support WPA2. You can go here to download the correct driver once you know which one. I have downloaded all the network drivers as well as the software drivers and some other recommended updates. I guess I'm just hoping there is an update or something that can allow it without having to replace it. I have Windows XP with SP3 (which is supposed to allow WPA2) with a Dell 1397 Wireless Card.
On google i typed in dell 3197 wpa2 and at the top found 2 other people that are having problems with their NIC or Service pack. When you ran ipconfig, it looks as if you were using a wired Ethernet connection - are you? Your adapter is associating with the wireless network, so WPA2 is working. : Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Tunnel adapter 6to4 Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: Connection-specific DNS Suffix .
