HP really has very good support--call and speak with a live person, and you should be ok, or else have a problem identified which might require use of your warranty, if it is still in place. You can also troubleshoot setting up a wireless network yourself using XP or Vista help--they are not too bad. Do you use a router? if so, you need to set it up for encryption, or anyone can use it (like a neighbor).

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.

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.

I have an hp compaq and it connects everywhere except my house?


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Wireless connection


You will need to speak to the person in charge of the security enabled network, and obtain the type of wireless security (WEP or WPA) and the password.

You should also determine what security types are supported by your own laptop's wireless connection. If it is an older one, it may only support WEP, and you will be unable to connect to any WPA protected networks.
