Linksys wireless validating identity problem

Since 've got my new dir-655 router, one PC is acting strange It's a Dell Latitude D430 which has been working fine with my previous (SMC) router.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. 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: 1.01hmmm..question....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.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....

However when I switched to wireless, it stuck in validating identity status forever. I just made it work after I placed my AP inside my network.I think maybe when I place my AP outside the network, I didn't open the port on the firewall for IAS.Do you think this would solve the problem after opening the port? For user has already logged on domain using wired connection, they can successfully loged on domain using wireless on same computer.) it can't be created a second time, ISPs don't support that. There should be only "Local Area Connection" there (and/or possibly "Wireless Network Connection"). (copy in a command prompt, just highlight the text with a mouse drag and press enter). Did you run the networking wizard once you reformated and reinstalled the OS. After all of this is done then connect using the wireless connection.Is the network setup for just auto IP configuration. Oh and make sure that the mac address of the wireless card on the xp machine has not been excluded in a mac address filter in the router.
