I'm currently doing a spare-parts build to put a media computer in the living room, and having a devil of a time getting my Rosewill RNX-6300 wireless card to connect to my network.I'm trying to set it up using Windows as opposed to the proprietary Rosewill software -- the Rosewill software is a little over my head.To resolve this issue, disable 802.1X feature on your Windows computer.
Note: If your router has multiple ethernet ports, DO NOT use the WAN port to connect a computer.
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.
WAN ports are usually colored blue and/or labeled with an icon that looks like a little monitor; they are intended to be used to connect devices that provide internet, such as Cable, DSL, or Satellite modems.
If you see a message about Validating Identity upon connecting to the Cradlepoint router, it means WEP security mode is enabled.
This means that you will have to disconnect (unplug) the cellular modem (aircard) from the computer and close the cellular connection manager tool provided by your cellular carrier or, disconnect from any LAN (wired Ethernet) or Wi-Fi (wireless) connections before you will be able to connect your computer to the router either by Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi.
By default, the wifi SSID will always be the model of the Cradlepoint router separated by a (-) and then the last 3 of the routers MAC address.
