An error message appeared saying ''windows were unable to find a certificate to log you on to this network''. What is the problem with this, is this due to changing the security mode?

Hi,

The problem may cause for many reasons. One most common cause: this might be the cause for you are running IEEE 802.1x authentication, thus, it's not actually in a 802.1x (EAP) environment.

First thing you will do you will go to the ''start'', find the ''Programs'', next the ''Accessories'' and then ''Communications'' followed the ''Network Connections''. When reach the Network Connections please right click with it. Choose the ''Properties'', then uncheck IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network. After checking restart it.

Next is checking your ISP IT engineer, if it's not yet installed an SSL program which limit changes mode to Router and extra connection stops. If it is already done, you will have to uninstall it. And now, restart your Laptop Computer and try to connect it to the router. Hope this could help you.

Dear, Sam Malone.

This problem has surely occurred due to changing the security settings, make sure that your Windows firewall is turned OFF because that may creating barriers in the wireless connectivity. Secondly, the problem is that you have changed your wireless router by WPA Temporal Key Integrity Protocol(TKIP) to WEP. Because WPA carries advanced compatibility than WEP, WPA is the modified version of WEP which could disable all the weaknesses of WEP. If Still you have problem in connectivity with Windows then you can shift towards Vista, for this I am adding a URL.
