Wireless validating identity certificate problem
This only happens with the 802.1x ssid (staff) and not with the PSK ssid (for guests).
I then verified that the only way for a windows computer to connect to this is to uncheck the "verify the server's identity by validating the certificate" option while manually adding the profile. I just deployed a setup very similar to this last week, to provide Internet access to a week-long campground event.
i tried unchecking the enable authentication box under advanced settings but still no result.
i am using lenevo 20079 intel celeron 2gb ram with windows xp sp2 with atheros AR9285 wireless adapter.
Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom. For Windows XP you do not need to boot from a USB drive. I have worked long hours on problems like this which only resulted in a System Reload to solve it.
Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems. I know it says for IT professionals but it will work for what you want to do. id=24 If Windows XP is already installed there is no need to boot via USB to install SP3. Simply download the file Windows XP-KB936929-SP3-x86from the Microsoft site. take it to the computer in question and click on it.
I don't know how you generated your public and private key-pair for your RADIUS server but generally speaking it will either be self-signed or signed by a certificate authority.
In turn the signing certificate authority's public key will be distributed to clients, either through GPOs, Active Directory Certificate Services or it was included by Microsoft in the Trusted Root Certification Authority repository.
These machines belong to the end users so we can't easily control settings with group policy or registry hacks.
It's not a recommended configuration to have a external root CA sign your RADIUS server's certificate.
This is from the Free RADIUS documentation but I expect it is equal valid for the Microsoft implementation: In general, you should use self-signed certificates for 802.1x (EAP) authentication.
next year) I plan to offer to install the server certificate directly from the captive portal, so that users (mostly Windows users) won't have an issue logging into the secure network.
error "windows was unable to find certificate to log on to the network" & showing validating identity.
