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 shouldCAN'T CONNECT TO WIRELESS ROUTER WITH LAPTOP. - 30924e8.jpg work.

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

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.
20105717471412.jpg
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.
20105717497337.jpg
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.

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!

Depend what kind of security protocol you are using in your wireless network. So try to change to WEP2 in router and computer.

Laptop will only connect to router but not the internet. Message says ''Limited or no Connectivity'' and unable to produce an IP Address. It says ''firewalled''. How do you correct this?


your laptop is not getting the IP address from the router.
Is your wireless network secured ? If it is secured then check the network key.

Cant find certificate for wireless


To fix, you go into the properties page of your wireless connection, go to "Wireless Networks" tab and then to Properties of the chosen wireless network you are trying to connect to. Then go to "authentification" tab and untick the box saying "Enable IEEE802.1x to the availiable network" and that should solve your problem

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer.

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.
