Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 and cannot get it to connect to my school Wi Fi network. I can access it via a LAN wired connection but the computer does not have WPA2 capabilities.
Wireless network connection says validating identity
I can now connect to the Network but with no internet capabilities.
Comp says: signal: very good SSID: Gonzaga University, speed:54.0-MBps, status:validating identity, address:169.2 ..
The computer says that 'Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network GU' and in the network places above the signal from Gonzaga it reads 'validating identity'.
I am trying to save some money seeing as I'm a college student.
Thank you for any help Windows XP Version 5.1 with Service Pack 3..
If it is just an update where do I find what to download?
I have already gone onto microsoft and updated the software. Typically it would be a Dell 1397, Dell 1510 or Dell 1520.
(It is possible I missed an update, but don't think I did). They are the ones that told me the NIC was too old to support WPA2. You can go here to download the correct driver once you know which one. I have downloaded all the network drivers as well as the software drivers and some other recommended updates.
I guess I'm just hoping there is an update or something that can allow it without having to replace it. I have Windows XP with SP3 (which is supposed to allow WPA2) with a Dell 1397 Wireless Card.
After installing the latest updates I tried connecting again, no luck..
So I went into the computer and turned off the Dell Wireless management Utility to use a Zero Config setup.
