Wireless network validating identity message
I have a HP Mini 110-1000, in connecting to the router by its HP Wirless Assistant, it has a message saying, \u0022Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network . On the other hand, the wireless network connection keep showing \u0027validating identity \u0027.Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly.
The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down.
Found this; "Try the following: First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings. I just use a disc slip-streamed with a computers drivers. But if neither wired nor wireless works them you may have to bite the bullet.
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.
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! Remember, if for any reason you’re unsatisfied, we can continue our conversation until you’ve received the information you’re looking for. Never got that message you still willing to help me try and figure this out...
If I haven’t answered your question, please let me know and I’ll be happy to answer any other follow-up questions you might have. I had to step away for fear of throwing this darn thing thru a window my network key is 10 digits....
