Assuming you're using Windows XP and Windows' own "Wireless Zero Configuration" to manage the wireless networking...

Go into the Network Connections folder, right click the Wireless Network Connection and select properties. In the Properties sheet that opens, select the Wireless Networks tab. Highlight your wireless network and click the Properties button.

In the next Properties sheet that opens, select the Authentication tab and untick the box "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network". Click OK back through all open dialog boxes.

Open the Services window ("Start > Run", type SERVICES.MSC and click OK), scroll down to the entry for Wireless Zero Configuration and double click it to open its Properties sheet. Make sure the service is "Started" and that its Startup Type is set to "Automatic". Click OK and then close the Services window. Now follow my previous instructions.

hi mgmcc
did that opened the services all is set to started and automatic but where is the network connections folder all i can find is wireless wizard etc and the other one network connections and that says connected cannot find properties

>>> ...but where is the network connections folder

It is one of the applets in Control Panel.

Alternatively, go to "Start > Run", type NCPA.CPL and click OK which will open it.

As it isn't possible to post screenshots in these forums, I have uploaded a Word document with screenshots to guide you through the steps to disable 802.1x authentication. click here
