I was on the internet using a wireless hookup, then im not on the internet and its telling me its trying to "Validate Identity" I don't know what this means or what it needs to Validate and or who's or whats Identity?Are you receiving an endless "Validating Identity" connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.Then it asks for encryption Key and the options are WEP or disabled. I have never seen this before on any of my computers. I am yet to try WEP Encryption with my router to see if that works.
