Choose a wireless network validating identity
I can't provide you with a screen shot of how to do this because I don't have access to the Comcast gateway that you are using, or to a setup screen for your unnamed Wi Fi client. She still has the original box that the computer came in along with a bunch of discs, including the Driver Recovery CD.Since I don't want to make matters worse than they are now, I haven't uninstalled the network card yet. Uncheck Varify the server’s identity by validating the certificate, then click the Configure button. Make sure the Automatically use my Windows logon name and password (and domain if any) checkbox is unchecked. Check Specify Authentication mode and choose User Authentication. What's really strange, now I noticed, that this problem is occurring with any Network in range on the list. Without actually looking at the system, it is hard to tell exactly the problem but here are 2 general things to explore: Did you by chance install any of the Comcast utilities on her machine?I thought that at first, perhaps, a virus and/or malware somehow got by and changed/altered the wireless settings, though the antivirus software and Malwarebytes software is up-to-date and is showing no problems. One of these may be doing strange things with the connection. If that does not work it could be a newtork card driver issue. However, before you do that I would advise you to make sure that you have the driver disc for that netcard (or for the notebook if it is an internal Wi Fi netcard), because Windows will often not have built-in drivers for any given netcard.However, since version 1.1.7, Vigor AP supports Certificate Configuration which can generate the required certificate itself, and use it for 802.1X authentication.Hi all, I just signed up (for my elderly mom) with Comcast for their hi-speed Internet service (performance level).
I did bring over my all-in-one desktop yesterday and checked the direct connection, the Ethernet connection, and at least that works fine.One way to restore networking, especially wireless, is to go into control panel, system and delete the network card. Since you mentioned that this notebook had previously been setup for multiple wireless profiles, my suggestion would be to delete all existing wireless profiles and see if that allows you to then create a new profile for the Comcast gateway.I can't provide a screen shot to illustrate how to do that because I don't know if you are using the built-in Windows Wireless Zero Config, or a vendor specific utility for your unnamed Wi Fi card.Self-install kit included the ARRIS model TG 862G/CT Wi-Fi tower modem.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.
