I have downloaded all the network drivers as well as the software drivers and some other recommended updates. I have Windows XP with SP3 (which is supposed to allow WPA2) with a Dell 1397 Wireless Card. After installing the latest updates I tried connecting again, no luck.. So I went into the computer and turned off the Dell Wireless management Utility to use a Zero Config setup. I can now connect to the Network but with no internet capabilities. Comp says: signal: very good SSID:Gonzaga University, speed:54.0-MBps, status:validating identity, address:169.254.12.210 .. The computer says that 'Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network GU' and in the network places above the signal from Gonzaga it reads 'validating identity'. After switching to zero config and connecting a pop up came up saying that the conmputer is set up for 802.1x and that I must go into the router(or somewhere else I forget) and make sure that the router and the computer matched..... I can connect wirelessly to another server named ddrw but the signal strenght and speed is just about 1MBps.... On google i typed in dell 3197 wpa2 and at the top found 2 other people that are having problems with their NIC or Service pack.
** Now it will not show me the address, but still says validating identity.

**What comes up when i type in 'ipconfig' (maybe its useful)
