So I guess I will leave the IEEE 802.1x Authentication disabled then.Thanks When you install the new DIR-655 router, you didn't copy the security setting from the old router.If the DD-WRT password change page displays, your upgrade has been successful, and you must now perform another hard 30/30/30.This time, when you navigate to 192.168.1.1, click "Reboot" and wait for the router to come online again so you can configure it. It finds the router fine but stalls at 'validating identity'. But I have recently re-installed windows and now can't get it to connect.
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 Im 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.The computers have to match the new setting with the router. HOw do I reset the settings of the computers to match the new router? IEEE 802.1X is the standard which defines authentication against a RADIUS server.Reset or change the security settings on the two wired computers. For right now I just disabled (unchecked) "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication for this network" on both wired computers. But now by doing so, would it do any harm to my network? If you have a home network, it's unlikely that you have a RADIUS server - so that's OK.Just copy the DIR-655 router name, security password..to the computers wireless adapter should fix the in to the router with the computer that can, you know 192.168.0.1, go to advanced/network filter, check that MAC filtering is disabled, the go to WIFI protected setup, check that it is disabled, usually the DIR-655 has at least one of them enabled by default Ummm, my wireless laptop never had problem with validating identity only 2 wired computers are should validating identity. I have also read that WEP needs to be switched to WPA.Your computers still have the old security setting and router name on it.That is the reason all the sudden "validating identity" show up on the computers.the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).Do you have the same security setting, router name, and IP address on the router?Disclaimer: Only For Support is an independent 3rd party service provider for products and services via phone and onsite tech support.Any use of third party brand names, trademarks, products and services is only referential and disclaims any affiliation, sponsorship or endorsement of or by any such third party until expressed in writing.You will have an option called wifi protected setup(wps)... This feature when enabled gives the error message like "validating identity"..by the other way instead of disabling the wps, you can add the network manually by entering the network information like ssid, password and security type... This is a 100% proven solution for validating identity.... Hi, a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
