Network connection stuck on validating identity
I had already tried the first half of your solution, but I went and did it again just to be sure.
The only item of note is that after commanding "ipconfig/renew" I got the following: An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection 3: The R PC server is unavailable.
So essentially my problem is the fairly typical "Had Virus/Trojans/Rootkit, Removed Same, Can No Longer Connect To the Internet" dealio.
This all started a few months back when I had an original problem, took it into some (SEEMINGLY) reputable guys who basically turned out to be horrible shysters.
I have never encountered this with other wireless connections for which I have the password.
I also tried the pinging thing and got four nice healthy pings, so apparently the card is physically fine...?It says something about windows not finding a certificate.supercoqui on: August 08, 2007, AM » Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. The DNS Client was already set to Automatic, and I was unable to click Start as it was already going. The DHCP Client was also set to Automatic, but was stopped.
