Windows xp validating identity wireless network
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. Once I unchecked that box and tried to reconnect to the wireless network, everything worked fine!
Laptop: - Dell Latitude D610 - Windows XP Professional Desktop (hooked up to home cable internet provider): - Asus Essentio Series - Windows 7 - has Netgear wireless router to allow home wifi network I've had no problems getting my Android phone or my kids' i Pods to access the wifi service at home, so I expected to easily use my laptop on the wifi network. I haven't used my laptop in a while (and never on home wifi network, only set up a few months ago), usually stays plugged in to ethernet at work.
It was a very easy fix, after all the time I wasted.... Hope it helps: Another possibility for anyone else out there who happens to find this thread while searching for problems is that the Laptop if its old enough and running windows XP, does not have the ability to recognize the WPA2 security protocols, which if a new router is installed, is probably the security the network has.This is a really easy fix: First download the Microsoft XP update KB893357 on a computer that has internet and get it to the computer that doesn't via flash drive or burning it to a CD.Run that update, it probably will make you restart your computer.Hello, I am assumeing that you are useing a patch cable to connect to your Router to get on? Also, Please provide the make an model of the unit.Please, make sure that the driver for the wireless is installed by right clicking my computer going to properts an then go to device manager.
