Validating identity netgear windows xp
To make a long trouble shooting story short the solution to my problem was to check and change the security settings on my router to allow WPA-PSK(TKIP) WPA2-PSK(AES)encryption settings.Check the wireless settings and data encryption settings on all the laptops that you are trying to connect to your wireless network and synch with the security settings on your router setup. I just reinstalled my 2004 Sony Vaio laptop and was having issues.My work laptop which is an N and was running Windows XP SP3 was fine.My wife's laptop was running Windows XP SP2 and was receiving the Window's error message 'unable to find certificate'.Then I selected the Association tab and proceeded to reenter my Network SSID and further Info. But, Make sure you make note of how the settings were on the Association page before you start the process. Finally, this will replace your wireless network settings for you network on that list. I clicked the Association tab and wrote everything down.there will not be 2 there even though you technically added another one. Then I clicked cancel and went back to the page where I found the my wireless network and selected the Add button.He has an Averitec Laptop, and had some broadcom software that was conflicting with the built in Windows software. Three years later and this worked perfectly for me. I'm starting to feel bad getting great tips by doing google searches and not letting people know that their advice actually worked! This thread may be three years old now but the info is still current (Nov 2009).
Both computers have been running successfully for the past few months.Now there is no conflict and the thing can connect. I was frustrated until I found this link and it solved my problem. I clicked the Association tab and wrote everything down.One more thing to try: In the list of available networks, click on Change the order of preferred networks, double click the name of your network in the list (takes you to the properties) and make sure the network key is typed in there. I have the same problem--I get the message about not being able to find a certificate to log on to the network. Wait-a-go, Geeks To Go, you were immensely helpful and I really appreciate it. Then I clicked cancel and went back to the page where I found the my wireless network and selected the Add button.For some reason though I had to set the router to WEP instead of WPA for some reason.Also the fact that my laptop had service pack 1 when I reinstalled made the wireless setup page look different.
