After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.
Click on the Authentication tab and now uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box.
If the box was checked, then that was why you were getting the “unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network” message because Windows is looking for one, but your wireless router is not setup for certificate security. Once I unchecked that box and tried to reconnect to the wireless network, everything worked fine!
I just installed a new wireless router and after entering the wireless SSID and password, I’m stuck at the status “Validating Identity”.
Are you receiving an endless "Validating Identity" connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.
