Linksys n validating identity
To resolve i went to the manufacturer site and downloaded the latest drivers for the wireless card, and any other drivers i could. I had the same problem with a toshiba satellite p30 running windows xp pro sp3 with an atheros 5004x wireless card.
I tried every solution I could find on the net but nothing worked.

I went to the atheros site and downloaded the lastest driver.
