Unable to apply any authentication for the Wireless
Unauthenticated wireless connections work alright.
At the 192.168.1.1 > "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.

Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on yourcomputer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL - http://192.168.0.1 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.
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.
1. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections 2. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection > Properties 3. Click on Wireless Networks tab. Remove all the names under Preferred Networks box. 4. Click on Add button. Type the Name or SSID of your wireless network 5. If you have encryption enabled, uncheck the box at the bottom "The Key is Provided for Me Automatically". 6. Type in your wireless encryption key in the given boxes. 7. Now click on Authentication tab. Uncheck the box that has the "Enable IEEE Authentication". 8. Click Apply and OK all the way out. Restart your computer. 9. It should be able to connect wirelesly.
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.
xp : go to start --> control panel ---> on the top leff click on "switch to classic view"
then open network and internet connections
right click on the wireless conn. then from the upper tabs go to "Authentication"
your setting should be as following :
Enable IEEE 802.1x ....... (cheked)
EAP Type : Smart Card or certificate
Authenticate as computer ...... (checked)
Authenticate as gues ..............(unchecked)
then click on "properties"
choose "use a certificate on this computer"
and check "use simple caertificate ......"
and check "Validate server certtificate"
click ok till u close all the boxes
:D hope that would work :D
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.
