Windows Was Unable To Find A Certificate To Log You On To The Network NETWORK-NAME

If you keep getting this error message while connecting to your wireless network :"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network NETWORK-NAME", there is one cause for your problem specially if your router keeps cutting down your internet until you reset, it's setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS
instead of WPA-PSK on the client. The router and the client are both trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate.
Since you don't have one, it complains using Microsoft technobabble.
Change the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends.

If you can't fix this feel free to leave a comment and ask, please comment and tell me.

I believe this immediate cause of this is correct - i.e. for some reason the windows wireless client (i.e. your laptop), is trying to login using WPA-RADIUS instead of something else.

The problem I had was that i wasn't trying to use WPA; I was trying to connect using WEP. i found that on the "authentication" tab for this wireless connection, I had "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network" turned ON. I think because of this windows was trying WPA-RADIUS instead of WEP, like I wanted it to. I disabled that (unchecked the check-box), and I was able to connect with no problem.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. This was driving me nuts. :-)

cheers! Keep up the good work.

For those of you who don't know, this Authentication tab is not in the regular wireless properties. You go in there, then you go to Wireless Networks and do properties for the preferred network and then it's in there.

Tria Mera - 666 - The truth

Following is a reference to the movie white noise, what you see on this page is not my opinion, and I am not interested on this stuff, if you come here than you are probably searching after watching the movie or researching tria mera term, this is for educational purposes only.

The expression, Third Day, appears in several narratives in the Bible. (Occasionally, it is “three days.”) Some biblical interpreters have thought that some of these third day motifs have significance by signifying a certain divine principle, and a few interpreters have thought that they are cryptic in meaning. Why? Interestingly, these narratives record some of the most important events in the history of Israel. And surprisingly, except for the Bible’s mention of the third day, the seventh day, and its account of creation in Genesis 1, the Bible rarely mentions the other days of the week.
The Number of the Beast is described in the Book of Revelation 13:18. From the King James translation:[5]
