When you try to log onto a wireless network, you may see this error message: “Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you onto the network xxxx”. Step 2 Double-click Network Connections in the new window.

If the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box is checked, it will trigger the “unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network” message because Windows is looking for a certificate but your wireless router is not set up for certificate security.

Step 6 Select the Connection tab and check the Connect when this network is in range box.

The problem is I have a popup down the bottom right hand corner of the screen saying "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network speedstream" I am stumped Thanks for your reply.

Yeh I tried that after doing a google search on the error message.

First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.

b) Select WPA2-­‐Enterprise in the Security type dropdown menu.

Click Manually connects to a wireless network, then click next. Under Information for the wireless network you want to add a) Enter Middlebury College into the Network name field.

Click on the Authentication tab and now uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box.

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!
