I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful! So then I tried to connect from my desktop computer that has a wireless USB adapter attached to it and I ended up getting this error message: Fabulous! I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.Currently they are connecting using PEAP and validating the server certificate through ACS.
I have a laptop with a Dell D630 with Wi Fi power switch on the side.
Because I have a switch to disable the Wifi power, this seemed easier/safer, and it worked. thanks, Solution: remove whatever "preferred networks" are displayed in wireless netwok card's property page, n click ok. happens when u switch to a new router or use a new different SSID.
None of these changes gets saved.I try to connect, I get a permanent validating identity message and all of the settings I entered are erased.
I can't access the router setup page because Internet Explorer loads, then encounters an error and has to close.
First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.
Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.
This seemed to work for me after I disconnected from my router and reconnected again.
However, you may have to go into "view wireless networks", and then choose "change order of preferred networks" in left corner of screen.
If the box was checked, then that was why you were getting the “unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network” message because Windows is looking for one, but your wireless router is not setup for certificate security. Once I unchecked that box and tried to reconnect to the wireless network, everything worked fine!
