    In windows XP I can find the authentication tab, but in Vista Home edition don't have it. I installed Linksys WRT54GS router but I can't connect to the internet. I click for the help and support of vista and showed that I need to enable 802.1x but I can't follow the steps because I can't find the authentication tab in the properties. I'm not also sure if the wireless in the router is already in enable.

    To check if the wireless is enabled on the router, connect an ethernet cable between the computer and the router, and login to the router via it's web interface (usually 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 for Lynksys).

    With regards to the Authentication tab, are you logged into Vista as an administrator?

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.
201057174637230.jpg
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.
201057174730846.jpg
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.
201057174828470.jpg
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.
201057174932891.jpg
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.

Serching for wireless switch on Nec Laptop Versapro NXseries


If You cannot enable 802.1x authentication on computers running Windows 2000 because support for 802.1x is not provided by default in Windows 2000. Therefore, the associated user interface (the Authentication tab) does not appear in the Network Connection Properties dialog box.

A supported feature that modifies the product's default behavior is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to modify the behavior that this article describes. Apply it only to systems that specifically require it. This feature may receive additional testing. Therefore, if the system is not severely affected by the lack of this feature, we recommend that you wait for the next Windows 2000 service pack that contains this feature.

The following files are available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:
Collapse this imageExpand this imagedownload.gif English Language Version (http://download.microsoft.com/download/win2000platform/patch/q313664/nt5/en-us/q313664_w2k_sp4_x86_en.exe)

After you apply this update, follow these steps to enable 802.1x authentication:
  1. Installing the hotfix installs the 802.1x service in the disabled state. To change the Wireless Configuration service startup to Automatic: Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. Click Services and Applications, and then click Services. Set the Startup value for the service to Automatic, and then start the service.
  2. Open Network Connections by clicking Start, pointing to Settings, clicking Control Panel, and then double-clicking Network Connections.
  3. Right-click the wireless connection for which you want to enable or disable 802.1x authentication, and then click Properties.
  4. On the Authentication tab, do one of the following:
    • To enable 802.1x authentication for this connection, click to select the Enable network access control using IEEE 802.1x check box. By default, this check box is selected.
    • To disable 802.1x authentication for this connection, click to clear the Enable network access control using IEEE 802.1x check box.
  5. In the EAP type box, click the Extensible Authentication Protocol type that is to be used with this connection.
  6. If you click Smart Card or other Certificate in the EAP type box, you can configure additional properties if you click Properties and then follow these steps in Smart Card or other Certificate properties:
    • To use the certificate that is located in the certificate store on your computer for authentication, click Use a certificate on this computer.
    • To verify that the server certificate that is presented to your computer is still valid, click to select the Validate server certificate check box, specify whether to connect only if the server is located in a particular domain, and then specify the trusted root certification authority.
    • To use a different user name when the user name in the certificate is different from the user name in the domain to which you are logging on, click to select the Use a different user name for the connection check box.
  7. If you click Protected EAP (PEAP) in the EAP type box, your Windows user name and password are used for authentication.
  8. To specify whether the computer should try authentication on the network if a user is not logged on, if the computer or user information is not available, or both, follow these steps:
    • To specify that the computer try authentication on the network if a user is not logged on, click to select the Authenticate as computer when computer information is available check box. By default, this check box is selected.
    • To specify that the computer try authentication on the network if user information or computer information is not available, click to select the Authenticate as guest when user or computer information is unavailable check box.

If you have VISTA this is a very common problem. If you have XP or Win 7 you'll need to talk to ACER tech support about a replacement motherboard. Like I said if you have VISTA this is common. Microsoft was supposed to correct this problem with SP2, but I've still seen it.

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection1.gif Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.
