Windows is validating identity for wireless network who from mcfly is dating one of the saturday
Edit: since you have just reformatted the xp machine.ensure that the wireless drivers are updated to the latest version.Let your router do pppoe and routing, it's really designed for that. It seems that currently, your computer is trying to create a pppoe session (which involves logging in, validating identity etc). Change the wireless settings to create a new wireless ssid that you have not used before.Since the session is currently running (and now, a question – by modem or by the Vista machine? Wireless Network Connection (this is the one trying to validate identity) 1392 Connection (net Adapter) – Connected Thats on the XP machine that has just been reformatted. Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all Copy and paste the result here. Next enable the security type and settings that you are going to use.
Yesterday I reformatted a friends computer and reinstalled the OS and other software at my house. I brought her laptop and router to my house and it works fine. I tried to install the disc that came with the router, but it said something like the IP address wasn't static and I needed to imput the blah blah blah. Whatever PC was used when they installed Comcast needs to be connected to the router and the MAC address cloned to the router. It will be slightly inside the router housing so she'll need a paperclip to push it. She can then boot her laptop while the router does what its doing. Dot beside No for "Require a logon" and then all the way at the bottom, put the dot beside "Use Computer MAC Address" click Apply. I would think it would be easier to just hack into most routers with User- admin and Password- password. With her laptop turned off have her connect it to the router via an Ethernet cable. How can it be that easy to break the arbitrary numbers and letters?It does a 4 packet handshake to connect/authenticate and then that's it. Now you can break WPA/WPA2 as well if you capture the handshake packets.But unlike WEP which is just a matter of having like 100,000 packets and the pass phrase can be reconstructed, WPA/WPA2 cracking is more of a dictionary brute force thing.
