So if you have access (could be physical access, including say a stolen laptop) you will be able to find the key which will allow any system access to the network... However I’m still confused of why all of the sudden “validating identity” shows up right after I replaced the router from DI-624 to DIR-655. All I did was released the IP before I shut down DI-624 and plug the DIR-655 in powered DIR-655 up and off I go.

So I guess I will leave the IEEE 802.1x Authentication disabled then.

I can only got rid of it by going to authentication tab and un-checked the Enable IEEE 802.1x thingy.

But since it will do no harm to my network or computer I will just leave them disabled for the time being.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

EAP type was “ Smart Card or other certificate” and Authenticate as computer when computer information is available was checked.

Those were there as soon as I installed the XP on two of our desktops 2 years ago.

Just those 2 wired computers are displaying validating identity, otherwise all of my networking work perfectly.

I will check the router and see if the WPS and/or MAC filtering are enabled.

Although I could do anything on the Internet and what not while my connection notification icon is waiting to be validated (it never did), it just annoying looking at a little dot going back and forth LOL.
