Netgear wireless validating identity problem
Since 've got my new dir-655 router, one PC is acting strange It's a Dell Latitude D430 which has been working fine with my previous (SMC) router.The wireless connection of this system works fine, but when connected via the LAN connector, you will see that little connection animation (which you see when you get a DHCP address assigned as well)but only now it tells "Validating Identity" The connection works so their is no real problem, it's just very annoying.

Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.
But it has to be a known word or some variant, @ = O, 1 = I things like that.
But since WPA/WPA allows for spaces, I recommend a sentence. Doesn't need to be long, but just make it random like: "The mouse juggles pineapples" something silly and random.
You just have to find the common setting between the two devices.
On the other hand, the wireless network connection keep showing 'validating identity '.
