Wireless and validating identity

However, if the AP does not support Certificate Configuration yet, we may set up the Windows client not to verify the server's identity during 802.1X authentication. This article applies to Vigor AP when it's using WPA2/802.1X for wireless security mode and Use Internal RADIUS Server for 802.1x authentication. To skip server authentication, we need to use PEAP for RADIUS EAP type. In the Security tab, click Settings, un-check Verify the server's identity by validating the certificate, then click OK. Click Advanced settings, enable Specify authentication mode, and choose User or computer authentication, then click OK. After finishing the settings, connect to the wireless network. When being prompted for the credentials, type the username and password that configured on Vigor AP's RADIUS settings, then you will join the network. Select Manually connect to a wireless network, then click Next 5. In the Security tab, click Settings, un-check Validating server certificate. and un-check Automatically use my Windows logon name and password(and domain if any) then click OK. Click Advanced settings, enable Specify authentication mode, and choose User or computer authentication, then click OK. After finishing the settings, connect to the wireless network. When being prompted for the credentials, type the username and password that configured on Vigor AP's RADIUS settings, then you will join the network.

NOTE: Since version 1.1.7, Vigor AP supports Certificate Configuration to generate the required certificate by itself, and use it for 802.1X authentication. Go to RADIUS Setting Network and Sharing Center, click Set up a new connection or network. Select Manually connect to a wireless network, then click Next. Enter the SSID of Vigor AP in Network name, select "WPA2-Enterprise" for Security type, and then click Next. Enter the SSID of Vigor AP in Network name, select WPA2-Enterprise for Security type, and then click Next.

Can you please tell me how I can solve this problem?

I have a HP Mini 110-1000, in connecting to the router by its HP Wirless Assistant, it has a message saying, "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network . On the other hand, the wireless network connection keep showing 'validating identity '.
