I can't access the router setup page because Internet Explorer loads, then encounters an error and has to close.
This is the final installment of a three-part series on deploying wireless stations in a Windows network.
After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.
Here’s how to connect to your wireless router if you are getting this message.
 = If the eduroam network does not show up, click on Refresh network list.
Are you receiving an endless "Validating Identity" connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.
Using 802.1x requires support in the wireless firmware, as well as suitably configured drivers.
If you’ve already invested in equipment that doesn’t support 802.1x, you don’t need to scrap your hardware.
In the next window click on the "Authentication" tab, Make sure "Enable IEEE 802.1x...." checkbox is UN-Checked, the rest of this window should be greyed out.
Screenshots are taken from Professional version thus may slightly differ from other versions (e.g.
Home Edition, etc.): You have now succesfully configured Windows XP to connect to eduroam network.
I have unchecked the authentication box in network properties and entered the existing network key. steve UPDATE: My home net was set to WPA2 (from my Win7 desktop), which XP doesn't appear to offer. The IE error apparently is due to an old version, I switched to Firefox and there are no further problems.
None of these changes gets saved.I try to connect, I get a permanent validating identity message and all of the settings I entered are erased.
