Netgear wireless validating identity
Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.
After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.
But while it provides more privacy than most systems, it's not going to replace lying...
Every enterprise needs to establish a plan of action to assess and then recover from unauthorized access to its network.
I did bring over my all-in-one desktop yesterday and checked the direct connection, the Ethernet connection, and at least that works fine.
Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.
Funny thing, I noticed that if I type in any random numbers/letters for other secured networks in the area, the same thing occurs. Well, she only has a laptop and likes to movie around.

First box says Hardware enabling driver, second box says Software applications. I was happy to see that, when I accessed her wireless network, instead of almost instantly getting the [endless] certificate/Validating routine, I got that familiar opening of the box (Wireless Network Connection) with Type the key, and then click Connect. Disable the computer's wifi adapter and enable the ethernet port and reboot the computer. On the left side you will see "Change order of preferred networks" click on it.
As opposed to deletion and reinstalling, via the device manager, I figured I'd give it a try, updating the Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN. After typing in the Network Key that is on the ARRIS modem, lo & behold, I got an [endless] Acquiring network address. This will get your mom on the interent and you can piddle around with the wifi access at some later time. Then find the network name, click on it, then click "Properties"Go to the second tab "Authentication"Unclick the box "Enable 802.1x authentication for this network"That should fix your problem You asked "why wireless"?
