For the longest time I was getting a (unable to find certificate) bubble. but was able to connect to internet. now I am unable to connect and the same bubble keeps poping up. also this problem seemed to arise after I unplugged the usb stick for a moment and plunged it back in.
btw the pc is a windows xp, sp2. the usb stick is Linksys.

If anyone can tell me a way to fix this please help.

also the very same connection works fine on the labtop I am using right now.

I am assuming the linksys usb stick is your wireless card? Try uninstalling it from the Network devices in Device Manager(Right click on My Computer and click Properties, then the hardware tab and Device Manager button) and uninstall the software from Add/Remove programs then reboot and install it again. Following the instructions, which is normally put a CD in and it will tell you when to plug it in. Sounds like the software had a brain fart.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
