Hi all,

My first thread/post so here it goes...

I have Internet via UPC and am trying to connect a desktop upstairs to the wireless router downstairs. I bought a TP-LINK wireless USB adapter as the desktop doesn't have a wireless network card.

All was going swimmingly until I entered the encryption key in order to connect to the network and I get the error message "windows was unable to find a certificate to log you onto the network...".

I've done a bit of research on the Internet but all suggestions (including unchecking the "enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network") doesn't work. Have also tried most things on this thread...


Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
