So if you have access (could be physical access, including say a stolen laptop) you will be able to find the key which will allow any system access to the network... However Im still confused of why all of the sudden validating identity shows up right after I replaced the router from DI-624 to DIR-655. All I did was released the IP before I shut down DI-624 and plug the DIR-655 in powered DIR-655 up and off I go.So I guess I will leave the IEEE 802.1x Authentication disabled then.Do you have the same security setting, router name, and IP address on the router?
Thanks When you install the new DIR-655 router, you didn't copy the security setting from the old router.
Your computers still have the old security setting and router name on it.
To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel," "System" and "Device Manager." Review the properties of your network card.
Click the "Advanced tab." Locate the "Link Speed and Duplex" section.
You may occasionally get an error message that reads "This connection has limited or no connectivity.
You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources." It indicates that your PC is having a problem trying to access your network device to connect to the Internet.Check your firewall to determine whether it is blocking you from connecting to the network or to the Internet.Disable the firewall and attempt connecting to the network or Internet while with the firewall is disabled.If you experience these symptoms after installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, then this bug is causing the problem.In this case, go to Step 2; otherwise, skip to Section 3.Very often, a bug that typically affects Windows XP Service Pack 2 causes this error message.
