Unable to apply any authentication for the Wireless

Unauthenticated wireless connections work alright. At the > "wireless" > "authentication" admin page, the "apply" button won't have any effect when I chose WEP, WPA or WPA2. (If I change to the "basic" tab and back to the "authentication" tab, I see the changes didn't stick: Authentication Type [disabled]) Tried all sorts of restarts. Tried to disable wireless before setting authentication. Tried firmware update. Tried filling all WEP keys, tried ASCII and HEX, tried 64 and 128 modes. Tried all settings.

Re: Unable to apply any authentication for the Wireless

There should'nt be a problem setting WEP security or an other unless there is a firmware problem, as you simply select security, then the method e.g. WEP, select hex, then open system amd type manually your values for a chosen key number from 1 to 4.

I have Netgear DG834G v3 working fine on 3 laptops (vista) 2 iPhones ps3 and wii with wep and no issues. I bought a new printer which requires wpa to be used but when I change over nothing will connect....

Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on yourcomputer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the admin password and configure thewireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-

Belkin F5D7234-4 v1 (important thing)

In Belkin f5d7234-4 v1(only version 1) router, do not disable "WiFi protected setup" learn more about wps
  • If you do so, then the router will no longer work in 90% of cases.
  • The WiFi protected setup is enabled by default in this model.
  • The computers using XP,vista,win7 may not connect to the wireless network. 96cff88.jpg
In that case you can add the wireless network manually in the computer.Still if it says error message as "windows cannot connect",then follow these steps according to your operating system.

Control Panel>Network and Internet Connections(Network connections)>Right Click Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

Control Panel>Network and Internet (Network and Sharing Center)>On your left hand side click on Manage Network connections>Right Click on Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

Start >
Control Panel>Network and Internet (Network and Sharing Center)>On your left hand side Click on Change Adapter Settings>Right Click on Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

  • Now try to access wireless network.
  • If it still says windows cannot connect then no other go.
  • You need to disable WiFi protected setup.This will fix the issue for sure...

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!

I have a Netgear wireless router DG834G and i am trying to connect a wireless Brother printer and it is asking me if it is No Authentication or Encryption, No Authentication with WEP Encryption,...

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually else try
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

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.

Trouble reconfiguring WGR614 v5 after reset

Dear Koteshst

Is it the router that's showing 'Limitted and no connectivity' or the PC trying to connect to the router? If it's the latter make sure that the router is configured to assign IP addresses via DHCP and that your WEP/WPA keys match on both sides. If it's the former check your authentication info for SBC.

Let me know.
