Windows XP does not ask for password for a secure network, wifi not connecting. Says "validating identity".

Have tried just about everything I can think of. computer is connected to the front secure networks without problem.

More information would be useful.  Windows XP did not support thereafter until SP3 WPA2 wireless encryption, so if you have not installed SP3 and try to authenticate on a network protected by WPA2, it may not work.

Assuming that you do not have SP3 installed, try to go into your wireless network configuration / configuration screen.  (There are several different configurations of wireless, including ZeroConfig, but we do not know that you are using).  All most of them save previous in a 'profile' wireless connections so that when he meets this wireless again, he knows how to configure itself.  Find the section of your configuration screen profile, look for the SSID of the router you are trying to connect, and if you see it, then delete that profile.  This will allow your machine to then reconnect to the router wireless with an open mind.

    I am weather evauating to buy Dreamweaver CS6...

    Trial of Dreamweaver CS6 (on Windows 7) does not connect to the IIS server (v7) using "FTP over SSL/TLS (explicit encryption).  I have a NEW Godaddy SSL certificate installed on the IIS server.

    But to make a long story short, Godaddy is incorrectly signed SSL certificates on shared servers.  The servers/ips/domains and the certificate do not match.  So DW and many other tools fail authenticate with Godaddy SSL connections.  Some users have stated that other tools FTP, such as Filezilla as you mentioned, bypass and automatically change your connection to insecurity, but DW is very picky.  Once you modify encryption against zero, the connection will be accepted.  Best solution is if you want a certificate SSL correctly signed move to another host because Godaddy refuses to admit that they are wrong with SSL certificates on their sites.  These warnings will appear also to your users if you have a store saying the SSL certificate does not match the domain/ip and this can make users checking in a very nervous showcase.

  • Windows 7 does not connect to the new wifi networks

    I have a problem with connecting to wifi networks. My laptop only connect to wifi networks that I have already connected to in the past but does not connect to all nine.

For example, I can connect correctly to the House and my moms place as wifi passwords are already saved on my computer. However if I go to a friends house their wifi signal will appear but when I go to connect I will not have to enter a password, the mouse cursor will simply show it to load a few seconds and then nothing happens.

  • Homer in Windows Server does not connect to the internet.

    I installed Windows Home Server on a self-built media server. Everything on the hardware is working properly. The server software is installed. The ethernet line is connected to my Linksys router. The power light is on decision-making on the case ethernet connection. The power led is on the router where the ethernet is connected. So, in my view, that the issue is not material.
    Problems:
    1. the server does not connect to the internet.
    2. my computer does not recognize the server when I install the Windows Home Server Connector software.
    3. the wizard of Linksys on my computer does not recognize the server as a "new device".

    I feel like I'm missing a driver, maybe a driver of ethernet controller, but do not know how to diagnose the problem.  I downloaded the Windows tool that identified the problems I listed, but solutions are not feasible.

  • Media Player in Windows 7 does not recognize my valid Extender ps3 code? What should do?

    I get the ps3 np code. but he does not accept the PC?

    Hi duggybones,

    Method 1

    a. ensure that my firewall is configured correctly.
    b. ensure that my PS3 and computer are the same range IP addresses and subnet masks, so they can communicate with each other. In other words my computer and the PS3, allowing to obtain its information from my DHCP (Firewall, router).
    c. ensure that all firewall software, has the necessary changes to allow Windows Media Player to communicate on a UuNP. If you are using Windows Firewall and enable sharing for WMP, WMP will make the necessary changes to the Windows Firewall. If you use a different 3rd party firewall, as I do, McAfee, you will probably need to go this software and add the stuff of heroes, such as programs that can communicate on the network or reliable IP,

     

    Method 2

    Make sure you HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY PLUGINS AND CODECS FOR WMP TO DISPLAY ALL TYPES OF MEDIA, such as AVI, QUICKTIME, ETC..

    1. install Windows Media Player (except if it is already installed).
    2. in services.msc or "Computer management", change the account that uses Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service. Changed to "Local System account", but "allow service to interact with desktop" UNCHECKED. Restart this service. This was necessary to be able to add folders from my FAT32 external Western Digital HDD.
    3. click on Options
    4. click on library
    5. click on configure sharing, then the checkbox "share my media to:
    6. click on settings
    7. put in something you want to by the media as and leave the default settings.
    8. DO NOT CLICK on the "allow new devices and computers automatically. Check the marking THIS wil allows all plug in without you know and approve.
    9. click OK to return to the main properties screen.
    10. click the button of "records of the screen.
    11. once it is up, depending on how you have set up the computer, and how many user profiles you have to choose your options.
    12. for me, being all my assets in different places other than my profile in "Documents and Settings", I did an add and ADDED folders I wanted to add to the library.
    13 let WMP build the library and let him finish completely.
    14. click OK on everything until you find to WMP.
    15. check your library.

    Method 3

    1. activate the connection to the media server on the PS3.
    Once you sit down, you have a pop up, if you let WMP running, to allow unknown peripheral access. You can check your PS3 by verifying the MAC address. WMP doesn't support the PS3 yet, so it will be considered as an unknown device.
    In the OPPOSITE case.
    1. click on Options
    2. click on library
    3. click on configure sharing and if things worked properly, you should see an icon "unknown device".
    4. turn highlight the icon and 'allow' and do what you feel necessary, such that customize or right click the icon for additional properties.
