Trendnet router validating identity
For the laptop all I did was typed in the SSID name and entered the WPA2 password in Broadcom utility and off I go.For those 2 desktops after I replaced the DI-624 to DIR-655 and that is when all of this Validating Identity started.Reset or change the security settings on the two wired computers. For right now I just disabled (unchecked) "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication for this network" on both wired computers. But now by doing so, would it do any harm to my network? If you have a home network, it's unlikely that you have a RADIUS server - so that's OK.
The computers have to match the new setting with the router. HOw do I reset the settings of the computers to match the new router? IEEE 802.1X is the standard which defines authentication against a RADIUS server.
When Rapid7 notified TRENDnet about their report, our security team took immediate action to validate the claim.
While physical access would be required to exploit the vulnerability, TRENDnet has found a solution and users will receive a notification to update their firmware. Physical access to the Wi Fi Baby Cam is required to exploit this vulnerability.
EAP type was Smart Card or other certificate and Authenticate as computer when computer information is available was checked.
Those were there as soon as I installed the XP on two of our desktops 2 years ago.
Just those 2 wired computers are displaying validating identity, otherwise all of my networking work perfectly.
