However, it is recommended to use Windows to configure wireless network settings when possible. Enable it from the Network Connections Control Panel.These instructions are for use with the built‐in Windows XP Wireless Network Connection Dialog. Log in as Administrator or to an account with local computer Administrative privileges. If the wireless adapter is not enabled you will not be able to configure it. From the Network Connections Control Panel, right‐click on the Wireless Adapter, choose Properties then select the Wireless Networks tab. Select LMU_WPA_Fac/Staff from the Available networks and click Properties, or click the Add button to add a network which Windows does not currently see in its list of Available networks.

Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.

When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.

It says something about windows not finding a certificate.

The weird part is that I was using WPA TKIP with the passphrase and it was working fine.

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.

The following instructions are specific to Windows XP, but should generally apply to Windows 2000 as well.

Note that some wireless network clients require configuration through their own utility (not the XP Wireless network Connection dialog).

If needed, type the Network Name (LMU_WPA_Fac/Staff). Next Choose Properties, this will bring up the following window (Figure 4): 8.

You will be configuring WPA2 for network authentication and AES for data encryption. Next select the Authentication tab which brings up this window (Figure 3): 6. Current choices are “Smart card or other Certificate” or Protected EAP (PEAP). Click on Configure to the right of the Select Authentication Method pull‐down and you will see a window that looks like Figure 5. Under Authentication Method, select Secured password (EAP‐MSCHAP v2), and check “Enable Fast Reconnect.” 10.

Uncheck the box in order to get prompted for a login ID and password. Click “OK” in all the Wireless Client Set‐up Boxes all the way back to the “Wireless Network Connection Properties Box and wait for the client set‐up to complete. Upon completion of the set‐up, the “View Available Wireless Network” should show to be validating identity as in Figure 6 below. You should also see a pop‐up at the bottom right of your screen that says “Click here to select a certificate or other credentials for connection to the network”.
