Hi all, I just signed up (for my elderly mom) with Comcast for their hi-speed Internet service (performance level).
Self-install kit included the ARRIS model TG 862G/CT Wi-Fi tower modem.
First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.
Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.
It can find the network fine, but when I try to connect, I don't get the password prompt -- it moves straight to "validating identity," scans, and then says "Windows was not able to find a certificate to log you on to the wireless network Foo." The maddening thing is that the card was working fine a week ago, in the same box, using the same OS.
I pulled everything out, swapped out the motherboard, and reinstalled Windows on a freshly wiped hard drive, and now I can't get it up and running again. I've taken several runs at it, including attempting to manually change the settings for the network to include WPA-PSK and AES and the password, and I'm a bit worried that I've totally boned everything.
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.My router settings: ipconfig/all results from the XP box: Again, this card a week ago.I can't figure out why I can't get it up and running now.In any event I am finding that after rebooting the WPA2 code is no longer there and it has reverted back to Open WEP. I also tried the option: Network And Internet -- Add a wireless device to the network but again nothing is found I downloaded this: and nothing seems to have changed.
