I don't know what OS you are using ... below is the process to solve your problem in Win xp.


When you try to logon the wireless network, you may end up getting this error message: "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network xxxx".

This particular error is normally related to the authentication on a wireless network, usually because the Windows is looking for 802.1x connection by mistake. We can fix it with the following steps.
Step 1
Click on the Start Menu --> Control panel.

Step 2
Double click on Network Connections in the pop-up window.

Step 3
Right click on wireless network connection, then click on Properties.

Step 4
Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom. Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.
20105717489888.jpg
Step 5
Click on the Authentication tab and now uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box. 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.

Step 6
Click on the Connection taband check the Connect when this network is in range box.

Step 7
Click on the Association tab and uncheck the 'The key is provided for me automatically' box, then choose Network Authentication & Data encryption and type in the Network key according to the wireless settings on your wireless router. Please contact the technician of your wireless router if you have no idea about the information.

Step 8
Click on OK and Click on OK again to save your settings.


As yet, this problem has been successfully fixed, Windows can log you on to the network automatically at once.

Windows unable to find certificate to log on using netgear wna1100


Windows doesn't need a certificate to logon to the router.

It may need one to logon to a web page.

Check by accessing another web page.

Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network OS is XP SP2 N614


Here's how to connect to your wireless router if you are getting this message:

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. 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. If the box is checked, then that is 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.

And that's it! Once unchecking the box and try to reconnect to the wireless network, everything should work fine.


Hope this helps!

The network is asking for a certificate number - where do I find?


Log into the router and have a look at the encryption - see if there any details on certificates there - or change the wireless encryption from WPA2 to WPA

CAN'T CONNECT TO WIRELESS ROUTER WITH LAPTOP.


Temporarily disable all security on the router AND your laptop wireless card and try again to test connectivity.

The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it should30924e8.jpg work.

Also check to make sure that IEEE 802.1x authentication on the wireless network properties Authentication tab is disabled.

I have installed Belkin_N_wireless a8969d onto my pc. I have a work laptop that has a wireless router? already in it. however, when it tries to locate the belkin n it brings up an error message saying '...


when you say it has a router in it, you mean a receiver and you are trying to connect to the other pc without the means of an external router (network).

You need to set up the connection using windows wireless network wizard as you seem to be trying to connect 'adhoc', which is one pc to another.

It's too long a process to type here so use the wizard

also you need to check that both are on the same workgroup setting, this is found by right clicking my computer and then properties and computer name, as if they are'nt they cannot see each other.
