As of recently, she was able to use this computer to connect to a neighbor's/friend's secured wireless netowork and another neighbor's/friend's unsecured wireless network.
I also tried the option: Network And Internet -- Add a wireless device to the network but again nothing is found I downloaded this: and nothing seems to have changed.
While the modem seems to be operating properly, on her laptop, the only computer she has, running Windows XP, when connecting to the wireless network, at the bottom of the screen, I get an [endless] message, Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you onto the **** network.
At the top of the screen, where it says, Choose a wireless network, I get an [endless] Validating identity.
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.
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.
