Netgear wireless validating identity problem
The MAC address of that PC is used by Comcast to get your connection. On the back of the router, there is a reset button.
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.
But it has to be a known word or some variant, @ = O, 1 = I things like that.
But since WPA/WPA allows for spaces, I recommend a sentence. Doesn't need to be long, but just make it random like: "The mouse juggles pineapples" something silly and random.
You could break into a router the way you described.
But you'd have to know their ISP IP address, not the 192 etc address. I then changed it back to the Default Gateway, reset the Cable Modem, and hit the test button.
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.
It only happens on 1 system and only on the wired port (wireless no issue)Do you run with static IP address or DHCP on your wired LAN..... Its almost sounds like the SMC is making the connection to the PC/Laptop much faster than the D-Link....
You just have to find the common setting between the two devices.
On the other hand, the wireless network connection keep showing 'validating identity '.
Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.
Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.
