Hi,

We have had our broadband upgraded and we have installed it and are using it fine on most of our devices. Whenever I try to connect to the network on my Dad's XP computer, I get the following error message: "Windows can not find a certificate to log you on the network”. I have tried these but with no success:

Unchecked the Enable IEEE 802.1 authentication checkbox

Tried every combination of encryption, alternating between Open, WPA and WPA-PSK.

Removing the network and letting Windows find it again.

I don't know what else there is to try. Any help is much appreciated!

  1. Check the date/time and region on the XP system to make sure it's accurate.
  2. What is the model # of the new modem/router? It's possible that it simply does not support XP system connections due to their lack of support. Contact your ISP to verify.

Thanks for the replies guys. In the end I just bought a new USB wifi adapter for 2 quid. I'm thinking that the old PCI in that was previously used may have been incompatible with WPA-2 given its age.
