I'm new here and this is my first post, so Hey! I broke out an old Compaq XP laptop for my daughter to use. It hasn't been used in about 4 or 5 years probably, so naturally I've updated my router and network since then. I tried to set up the wireless network for my current settings. Went into Properties and set WPA, TKIP, and network password. Then I got the old "Unable to find a certificate" error. Now here's the rub. The page with the IEEE 802.1X checkbox is all greyed out and the box isn't checked anyway. Now what?
Whenever I go back to wireless properties, most times it resets WPA to WEP and an Open network. I reset WPA, TKIP, password, etc. and it is ignored and I get the Certificate error again. Repeat ad nauseum.
It's a "G" protocol at 54 Mbps as old as it is. So do I need to resort to re-installing Windows from scratch so that everything is picked up fresh? Or does someone know the part I'm obviously missing?
