Router Identifying....Forever.. Tags: Connectivity Acer Routers Wireless Networking Last response: February 5, 2011 5:10 PM in Wireless Networking Share parastorm February 4, 2011 11:18:31 PM Hi all, I have a Acer Laptop (junker) that quit connecting to the internet via wireless. I have a linksys WRK54G that is connected to a desktop via cat5 and it connects just fine. However, the Acer tries to connect, but just sits in "Identifying" forever and seldom connects, if at all. I just reformatted the Acer to rule out any problems with the OS, and I still have the same problem. Signal strength is reporting very strong, so I know it's getting a signal. Any ideas would be appreciated. TIA!! More about : router identifying forever Anonymous February 5, 2011 2:30:49 AM Presumably the Acer connects by ethernet okay ? Does wireless work if you disable wireless security in the router ? m 0 l parastorm February 5, 2011 11:51:12 AM It does not connect to the ethernet either. It gives me the option to connect wirelessly, reset, or acquire a new IP. I have disabled wireless security in the router, which was already open before since we do not live around anyone.

Sometimes when I wait long enough, It will no longer state "Identifying" but then say "Multiple Networks" then change to "Unidentified Network", but will never let the internet connect. m 0 l parastorm February 5, 2011 5:10:25 PM I called support for my RoadRunner and they did a reset from their office and it has fixed the problem for now.
