Abstract This article describes the tools used to troubleshoot a Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003-based wireless client, a wireless access point (AP), and the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) when using Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X authentication for IEEE 802.11-based wireless connections.
This article also describes the most common problems with IAS authentication and authorization, certificate properties, and the process of certificate validation for both wireless client and IAS server certificates.
First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.
Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.
It says something about windows not finding a certificate.
The weird part is that I was using WPA TKIP with the passphrase and it was working fine.
Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.
For detailed information about how to deploy a wireless LAN using IEEE 802.1X authentication, see Deployment of Protected 802.11 Networks Using Microsoft Windows.The Network Connections folder and the notification area icons provide information about the state of the authentication.If an authentication requires additional information from the user, such as selecting one of multiple user certificates, a text balloon appears instructing the user.Please verify the following values on the certificate: Name: guest.By: TERENA SSL CA Expires: 19-12-15 Please note that the figure values below differs from the above more recent values.I recently set up a wireless network for my new Sitecom WL-585 modem router with WPA-2 security and all went according to plan. Please note that these instructions assume an active IT account.Follow the instructions for your version of Windows below: If you are having difficulty getting your Windows 7 machine to connect, try setting up a manual connection.I have a Win 7 laptop, Vista laptop, XP laptop, Nokia N95 and Soundbridge all connected. After initially setting up the Win 7 laptop, in the case of the others I was asked for the security code and the connection was duly established. Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.
