Validating Identity.




I have a WAG160N. Im able to go online from the computers connected to the modem with ethwrnet cable. However when i try connecting from computers those are wireless, im getting this error : Windows cannot find a certificate to logon to the network.
What do i do ?


Solution :

  • Right click wireless connection icon
  • Click on view available wireless network
  • Than click on change advance settings inte left(SP2) or Advance(SP1)
  • Click the second TAB on the top [Wireless networks]
  • Clear preffered networks. Click on ADD below preffered network box.
  • Put in the details for the titles mentioned below

Association(Tab)

  • Network Name (SSID) : Put in your wireless network name
  • Data Encryption should be check
  • Network Authentication(Shared mode) should be unchecked
  • Uncheck the box "The key is provideded for me automatically" and put the network key and confirm it.

Authentication(Tab)

  • Check Enable IEEE 802.1x
  • Now uncheck Authenticate as Computer when computer info is available
  • Now uncheck Authenticate as as guest when user or Computer when computer info is unavailable
  • Uncheck Enable IEEE 802.1x
  • Click OK. Restart the computer. Should start working.

Also if you change the wireless security to WPA2 Personal, the chances of getting the same error are minimal.
