Windows validating identity Cougarhookup
By default, 802.1X authentication on Window 8.1/10 consists of not only client authentication, but also server authentication, which requires the server (here is the Vigor AP) to provide certificate information to the client.However, if the model or the firmware version does not support Certificate Configuration yet, we may set up the Windows client not to verify the server's identity, and still do 802.1X authentication with Vigor Router or Vigor AP.To obtain detailed information about the EAP authentication process, try the authentication process again and view the and files in the \Tracing folder.
For information about how to troubleshoot wireless connectivity on wireless networks that do not use 802.1X authentication, see Troubleshooting Microsoft Windows XP-based Wireless Networks in the Small Office or Home Office.
This article also describes the most common problems with IAS authentication and authorization, certificate properties, and the process of certificate validation for both wireless client and IAS server certificates.
This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.
When a wireless client running Windows XP with SP2 or Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 attempts a wireless connection, it goes through the following authentication states, which are indicated as the status of the wireless connection in the Network Connections folder, and in the new wireless connection Status dialog box, and in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box: Once authentication has succeeded, a wireless client running Windows XP with SP2 or Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 then attempts to obtain a valid IP address configuration and goes through the following states, which are indicated as the status of the wireless connection in the Network Connections folder, and in the new wireless connection Status dialog box, and in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box: These improvements give the user and the network troubleshooter more information about how the wireless connection is progressing, from the initial association to the allocation of a valid IP address.
If the wireless connection obtains an APIPA address, Windows XP with SP2 and Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 warns you with the following message in the notification area of the desktop: "The connection has limited or no connectivity.However, since version 1.1.7, Vigor AP supports Certificate Configuration which can generate the required certificate itself, and use it for 802.1X authentication.
