Validating identity on wireless
For detailed information about a Windows-based authentication infrastructure, see Wireless Deployment Technology and Component Overview.For detailed information about how to deploy a wireless LAN using IEEE 802.1X authentication, see Deployment of Protected 802.11 Networks Using Microsoft Windows.This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.
For Windows XP with no service packs installed and Windows 2000, if the wireless client is validating the server certificate (enabled by default) and the Connect if the server name ends with string is not correct, authentication will fail.
Verify that this string is correct from the properties of the Smart Card and Other Certificate EAP type on the Authentication tab from the properties of the wireless connection that corresponds to the wireless LAN network adapter.
Figure 3 shows the default properties of the Smart Card and Other Certificate EAP type for Windows XP with no service packs installed and Windows 2000.
