Running Windows XP, I try to connect to a wifi network, but get the following error "Windows Was Unable To Find A Certificate To Log You On To The Network". It never gives me the chance to enter the password.

This is a conventional wifi network, and I know it works, as my Linux box can connect to it just fine. Any ideas?

See this article : Fix “Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network”.

The idea is to uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network for your wifi network in the Wireless Networks list.
