Funny thing, I noticed that if I type in any random numbers/letters for other secured networks in the area, the same thing occurs. Well, she only has a laptop and likes to movie around.

She's always used wireless from the get-go, and in her particular situation/setup, where the cable goes to her entertainment center, it would be impractical to run an extension coax cable as well an an extension AC cord over to the modem.

I did bring over my all-in-one desktop yesterday and checked the direct connection, the Ethernet connection, and at least that works fine.

Since I don't want to make matters worse than they are now, I haven't uninstalled the network card yet.

When I put the CD in the computer, and after getting the Starting installation wizard message, a software setup screen then comes up with Select components.2 boxes with check marks on them. I told her that if we don't get this darn thing resolved before Sunday night, I'll just return it to Comcast and try another one. If the modem and the computer are within reasonable proximity, connect them with an ethernet cable.

Step 4 Select the Wireless Networks tab, and then select the network from the bottom list.

Select Properties once you locate the wireless network causing the error.

Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.

Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.

Can you please tell me how I can solve this problem?

I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful! So then I tried to connect from my desktop computer that has a wireless USB adapter attached to it and I ended up getting this error message: Fabulous! I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.

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.

Step 6 Select the Connection tab and check the Connect when this network is in range box.
