Windows xp wireless network connection validating identity

After initially setting up the Win 7 laptop, in the case of the others I was asked for the security code and the connection was duly established.

I am now trying to connect a friend's laptop, it is an ageing Toshiba Satellite M70-215 and from what I have been able to gather it is running Service Pack 2 and has only 512 MB RAM.

First of all I tried to connect using the built-in wireless, even after updating the driver, no network is found.

I then tried installing the supplied Sitecom N adapter, after some problems the network appears but I can't connect, I am told "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you onto the network" I read several threads that led me to uncheck "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network" and I actually managed to enter the WPA2 code but this just leads to the message "This connection has limited or no connectivity" and "validating identity".

If you are having difficulty getting your Windows 8 machine to connect, try setting up a manual connection.cheere Hadn't read all solutions so I apologize if I'm repeating someone but all I did was go back to Belkin router setup utility, or (192.168.2.1) and clicked "wi fi protected setup".Then, I selected disable at the "wi fi protected setup (wps)" option.There's no WPA2 on the card, just WPA and WPA-PSK: WPA-PSK was the only setting that would let me enter a network key.I had TKIP and AES as options there, but cipher type is AES on the router, so I chose that.My router settings: ipconfig/all results from the XP box: Again, this card a week ago.
