I have a 2001 Toshiba Sattelite. Everything was normal booting up my computer. But no matter what I did I could not connect to my network! I tried reinstalling the driver, disabling and then reenabling the device. I have windows XP home edition. I do know the device works because i'm using Lubuntu right now (and it's working) I need help. Hardware info is going to be very hard to get because I dont have internet connection on the Windows side of things.

 

 But here is a little helper, If you will. My network is a WPA2 network but it just says secured network. Every time I try to connect to it it says "Could Not Find A Certificate To Log You On To The Network" It wont even let me try to put in a password. I've ruled out a virus, and bad device.

 

 

Any help would be greatly appriciated!

Thank you! I know for sure now why it screwed up! Lubuntu is the culprit.

Were you able to get the wireless working and how did you do it? It could help other people with the same problem. Was this a dual-boot computer?

Yes, I used Wubi and I figured out that it's prone to screwing up windows drivers.

I switched off the  Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network like it told me to do. Thank you!
