Internet validating identity
: P What's really bugging me is that -- I swear to God -- this card was working, in a box, 7 days ago.
The power supply died, and I decided to transfer the card to another system.
It also re-enables 802.1x in the Authentication tab if I've deselected it with WPA-PSK. I have no idea how I blundered into getting this working in the past. Yes -- I think that's covered in the first image up top, which is a screenshot of my router settings.
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.
I'm trying to set it up using Windows as opposed to the proprietary Rosewill software -- the Rosewill software is a little over my head.
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.
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.
Absolutely right about the pics, it's just that without Internet the camera is far easier than snipping, editing, transferring to USB and carting across the house.
I pulled everything out, swapped out the motherboard, and reinstalled Windows on a freshly wiped hard drive, and now I can't get it up and running again. I've taken several runs at it, including attempting to manually change the settings for the network to include WPA-PSK and AES and the password, and I'm a bit worried that I've totally boned everything.
My router settings: ipconfig/all results from the XP box: Again, this card a week ago.
I had TKIP and AES as options there, but cipher type is AES on the router, so I chose that.
(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.
