Secondly you can change the SSID to what you want, and the channel to 1 or 11.Then if your operating system is windowsxp please follow the attachment to have a try.(they sent me a file attachment with the email) If your operating system is vista please refer to 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).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.Because I have a switch to disable the Wifi power, this seemed easier/safer, and it worked. thanks, Solution: remove whatever "preferred networks" are displayed in wireless netwok card's property page, n click ok. happens when u switch to a new router or use a new different SSID.
When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.
I had an unsecure network connection so I changed the security settings of my tp-link router from WEP to WAP-TKIP. after that, i changed my network settings to the same WAP-TPIK option. It just says "validating identity" and does not ask for a passkey at all. thanks You want to make sure you are using the same version of WPA on each side.
If you are telling me that you are using WPA with a shared key on your router, then you are using WPA - Personal. You want to make sure you are using that option on your computer. You do not want to make sure you are not using WPA-EAP. This version requires a certificate server and a matching certificate on yout computer to connect to the wireless.
I moved the selection tab to WPA2 only and keep the rest the same and no luck. Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.
