Are you receiving an endless “Validating Identity” connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.
You just have to find the common setting between the two devices.
When setting up WPA you will see the option for either a radius server (Enterprise, and you see this in the corporate environment) or a place to enter a passphrase (Pre Shared Key, PSK).
I cannot get WPA2 enterprise to work on my network. Windows Domain, using IAS and its own CA Linksys WAP200 Access Point I setup the AP to use WPA2-Enterprise Mixed using RADIUS I setup and registered IAS on the domain controller.
I added the AP as a client with and have tried using both RADIUS Standard and Cisco as the RADIUS type.
God only knows what all they did to it; at the very least they seem to have utterly screwed over System Restore.
So what I did was just: 1) open network connections 2) click properties 3) in the GENERAL tab, click INTERNET PROTOCOL (TCP/IP) 4) click Properties 5) choose obtain DNS server automatically My internet worked afterwards. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.
According to my friend, this prevented me from connecting to the net despite having a wi-fi connection.
As long as you use the same options for both, you should be fine. WPA-TKIP or WPA-PSK is typically the names for personal WPA. My problem was not actually answered by the TP-LINK technical support staff.
WPA2 is superior as it doesn't suffer from the recently discovered flaw with WPA that allows limited cracking, though it's not a method to actually allow someone to connect. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.
