Wifi validating identity certificate
I am, as you can tell, far from proficient at this. It's 2.4GHz, WPA2-Personal/AES, and I'm not sure about regular or wide, but in "Mode" it says it takes 802.11n, 802.11g, and 802.11b. This is probably not the enterprsie setup which you have at home.Is there a popup with "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network shepherd"? Asking because certificates are used for WAP2 enterprise and not for WPA2 personal. Is there a tick at "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network"? (Basically that uses a certificate to contact a central authentication server whereas you use a pre shared key).
I had TKIP and AES as options there, but cipher type is AES on the router, so I chose that.
from your screen shots what I am seeing is you chose wpa2-only for your encryption on your router and you are setting your ethernet card to wpa-psk.
(I tried TKIP later, when this didn't work, with the same results as described below.) So I set it to WPA-PSK / AES and entered my security key.
It's mixed letters and numbers, 32 characters long. Still "waiting for reply" in the main screen, and "cannot find certificate" on the pop-up.
It can find the network fine, but when I try to connect, I don't get the password prompt -- it moves straight to "validating identity," scans, and then says "Windows was not able to find a certificate to log you on to the wireless network Foo." The maddening thing is that the card was working fine a week ago, in the same box, using the same OS.
