Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
THE LAPTOP GIVES ME A MESSAGE SAYING; UNABLE TO FIND THE NETWORK CERTIFICATE. THIS IS WHY I'M NOT ABLE TO GET THE INTERNET. THE LAPTOP DOES RECONIZE THE WIRELESS NETWORK. I'M JUST NOT ABLE TO FIND THE SECURITY CERTIFICATE FOR THE ROUTER. THE ROUTER IS AN:LINKSYS BY CISCO/ N ULTRA RANGE PLUS, MODEL:WRT160N.
ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
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 should work.
Also check to make sure that IEEE 802.1x authentication on the wireless network properties Authentication tab is disabled.
