What is validating identity on a wireless network?

Validating identity on a wireless network is one of the serious wireless network issues associated with your system. It mainly occurs for a security enabled network. The message “Validating Identity” would appear on the screen and remain so for a while. The problem of validating identity associated with wireless network of the system would be less if the system is not in the ‘Security Mode’. In such cases the system finds it very easy to get connected to the associated router. But this act is not advisable due to many risk factors. In this mode the data that you might transfer would be vulnerable to hackers. But the problem is, when you opt for ‘Security Mode’, it might result in poor connectivity.

Following are the issues and the tips to solve validating identity problem associated with wireless network:

  • Connection problems
  • Disable authentication
  • Restart the router

Connection problems

Once you confront the validating Identity issue with your system, you might lose the convenience of getting connected to wireless network associated with your system. Once the ‘Security Mode’ is disabled for your system, then it might avoid connectivity problems. But it is insecure. Once you attempt to connect by typing the encryption key for improving the security, you might face the message saying “validating identity”.

Disable authentication

The authentication could be disabled by following simple steps. You could access the wireless network by clicking on the available networks. Then by clicking on the ‘Properties’ button that comes up after clicking on the ‘Wireless Network’ tab, you could see the ‘Authentication’ tab. There you are advised to clear the checkbox found near ‘Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network’. Thus you would succeed in eliminating the validating identity issue.

Wireless router restart

Wireless routers are very vital so as to establish excellent network connection with your system. Such routers would help you to transfer the data packets to the desired destination network. The destination network would be actually decided by the wireless router itself. The troubles associated with the wireless network in your system could be resolved if you restart the associated wireless router. This might even help you to succeed in avoiding validating identity issues.
