D link dir 655 validating identity
Since I couldn't connect to my network wirelessly, I decided to connect to it by wire.Then I just changed the settings of the router back to normal. Hi all, I just signed up (for my elderly mom) with Comcast for their hi-speed Internet service (performance level).Self-install kit included the ARRIS model TG 862G/CT Wi-Fi tower modem.According to my friend, this prevented me from connecting to the net despite having a wi-fi connection. My problem was not actually answered by the TP-LINK technical support staff.
You just have to find the common setting between the two devices.
I had an unsecure network connection so I changed the security settings of my tp-link router from WEP to WAP-TKIP. after that, i changed my network settings to the same WAP-TPIK option. It just says "validating identity" and does not ask for a passkey at all. thanks You want to make sure you are using the same version of WPA on each side.
If you are telling me that you are using WPA with a shared key on your router, then you are using WPA - Personal. You want to make sure you are using that option on your computer. You do not want to make sure you are not using WPA-EAP. This version requires a certificate server and a matching certificate on yout computer to connect to the wireless.
I thought that at first, perhaps, a virus and/or malware somehow got by and changed/altered the wireless settings, though the antivirus software and Malwarebytes software is up-to-date and is showing no problems. One of these may be doing strange things with the connection. If that does not work it could be a newtork card driver issue. However, before you do that I would advise you to make sure that you have the driver disc for that netcard (or for the notebook if it is an internal Wi Fi netcard), because Windows will often not have built-in drivers for any given netcard.
One way to restore networking, especially wireless, is to go into control panel, system and delete the network card. Since you mentioned that this notebook had previously been setup for multiple wireless profiles, my suggestion would be to delete all existing wireless profiles and see if that allows you to then create a new profile for the Comcast gateway.
Secondly you can change the SSID to what you want, and the channel to 1 or 11.
