When trying to access my wireless network it tells me that it cant locate a certificate to log on to my wireless connection. What does that mean? I have two other children who received these netbooks and they didn't have any problem accessing wireless connection.

If u are using Win XP, try the folowing steps.
First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.
Click on the Wireless Networks tab and select your network in the list at the bottom. 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.
Once unchecked that box and try to reconnect to the wireless network.

D-Link Wireless: validating identity

I believe this has to do with your automatic router/setup for wireless networks....but this is what I did to clear the same problem:

1) Right click on the tray icon that is searching for validation and select status.

2) A "Wireless Network Connection Status" box will open, click "Properties".

3) Your "Wireless Connection Properties" box will open showing the Wireless Networks available. Find the wireless network you are connected to and highlight it by clicking once, then click "Properties" just below.

4) Another box will then open with the properties for your network. Click on the "Authentication" tab.

5) Un-check the "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication...." checkbox.

You're good to go.... :)
