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
Ok, I just reformatted one of the computer and after i installed all the drivers for mobo i figured i cannot connect to the internet.
It looks like you are using WPA-EAP on your computer.
unless you are running into the initial problem that most older hardware had. You may need to do a firmware upgrade on your device that is connecting to the router. Firstly you can not use WPA, you can use WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK or WEP.
I'm having some trouble with getting my wireless to work with my laptop.
I've went through and done all the necessary steps for setting up a wireless network.
then I'd troubleshoot the wireless by doing the following: 1) Make sure that the MAC address of the wireless NIC card is in the "accepted" list on the router.
2) For the time being, disable the option to secure the wireless by MAC addresses.
The wireless connection of this system works fine, but when connected via the LAN connector, you will see that little connection animation (which you see when you get a DHCP address assigned as well)but only now it tells "Validating Identity" The connection works so their is no real problem, it's just very annoying.

I have 3 routers ( Linksys wrt300n - Netgear wnr854t - D-link DIR-655 ) no SMC....I just tried to connect to them all, one at a time, with my Lenovo T60 laptop..I cant get the animation ( not in Win XP nor Win Vista - running dualboot)In the windows versions it is possible to disable the animation function..Vista just rightclick on the animation an disable XP go to settings and network connections and rightclik on your LAN connection and choose propertiesand remove the "Show icon in notificationarea when connected"Product: DIR-655 - HW Version: A2 - FW Version: 1.33NAb01Product: DAP-1522 - HW Version: A1 FW: 1.20Product: DWA-643 - HW Version: A1 - FW Version: 2.0Product: DWA-160 - HW Version: A1 - FW Version: 1.20 EProduct: DCS-1130 - HW Version: A1 - FW Version: 1.01That's good for getting rid of the symptom, but doesn't solve the cause I want to know why i get this message when using the dir-655 and not when using another router.
I suspect a firmware upgrade probably fixes that behaviour. If you want to accept both computer credentials and user credentials you'll need to name both "Domain Comptuers" and "Domain Users" in your policy.
