Screenshots are taken from Professional version thus may slightly differ from other versions (e.g.Home Edition, etc.): You have now succesfully configured Windows XP to connect to eduroam network.Uncheck "The key is provided for me automatically" and enter and confirm your Network key.Start by verifying that a wireless access point (AP) or router is nearby and actively offering Wi-Fi service.

The below guide has been tested on MS Windows XP Professional and is based on Windows' default wireless configuration tool (Wireless Zero Configuration).

[2] = If the eduroam network does not show up, click on Refresh network list.

Are you receiving an endless "Validating Identity" connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.

Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.

Click on the Authentication tab and now uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box.

After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.
