Wireless internet error validating identity

Sometimes when the settings of the client device and the router don't exactly match, the client won't see the router's Wi Fi network.

Abstract This article describes the tools used to troubleshoot a Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003-based wireless client, a wireless access point (AP), and the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) when using Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X authentication for IEEE 802.11-based wireless connections.

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.

If you are trying to connect to the 5GHz wifi, there will be a 5g after the last 3 of the routers MAC address.

Scenario 1: Just one device cannot see the wireless network, while others can.

I cannot get WPA2 enterprise to work on my network. Windows Domain, using IAS and its own CA Linksys WAP200 Access Point I setup the AP to use WPA2-Enterprise Mixed using RADIUS I setup and registered IAS on the domain controller.

Your computer only allows one network connection at a time.

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.

If you see a message about Validating Identity upon connecting to the Cradlepoint router, it means WEP security mode is enabled.
