[QUOTE]The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"
Google shows 37 hits with this exact phrase.
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
will work.[/quote]

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.

Hi I am receiving a message "unable to find a


The router can have several different "methods" for making a connection.
You must have configured your computer to ask for a certificate from the router,
but you probably have NOT configured your router to hand-out a certificate.

Reconfigure the router, to use 'WPA' or 'WPA2' method, and set a pass-phrase or a password,
and reconfigure your computer to request a 'WPA' connection, and the request for "certificates" will vanish.

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!

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.
