Cannot connect to wireless network xp validating identity

Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.

cannot connect to wireless network xp validating identity-56

Beside, in Windows XP SP1 computer, the WPA encrypted wireless network can be connected without error too.

The error only surface on pre-SP2 Windows XP on both WPA and WPA2 protocols, and WPA2 on Windows XP SP2.

If you're having trouble connecting to a wifi network, you can sometimes fix the problem by removing and re-adding that profile.

Follow the instructions below to remove the network, then connect to it as a 'new' network. For more info see Delete a network connection in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Find the network on the list, right-click it, and select When the network connects and Windows asks what type of network, pick Public.

(The other choices will make your computer do extra work scanning the network for shared resources; this normally isn't dangerous, but it will waste processor time and battery life.) If the above instructions do not work, you may have to manually add the FVCCNET network profile.

The workaround is to manually create the network profile, setting it to use WPA2-Enterprise, then use the command line to fix the profile.

Select or manually add in the SSID for the wireless network, then click on Data Encryption option.

If Windows XP supports WPA and WPA2, you will see its options appear in the drop-down list, in addition to usual WEP.

Are you receiving an endless “Validating Identityconnection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.
