    Connecting to wireless network - EAP properties return error

    Good day,

    I'm trying to connect to the wireless network of my university, but I keep
    getting the same error. I did everything correct, but when I want to apply
    the certificate to the connection, I get an error.

    What I do is this: I go the the network centre, choose "Manage Wireless
    Networks". Then I right-click the wireless network, and choose properties.
    Then I go to the "Security" tab. When you look at the "method of network
    verification" listbox, "Protected EAP (PEAP)" is chosen (which is correct).
    Next to the listbox I click "Configuration..." (so I can select the correct
    certificate). But I simply get an error when I press that configuration
    button.

    This is the error:

    Windows has encountered an error saving the EAP properties. Specific
    error: The specified module could not be found.

    Maybe my description is a little vague, here's a clear screenshot:

    Thanks in advance.

    The above link is for wireless networking.

    I think you are complicating it!!!

    I'm certainly not. I did exactly what's written in that article you've given
    me. Except from one thing, because it's simply not possible because I get
    that error. It's at this point:

    (my own screenshot)
    http://www.geocities.com/xargotheone/offsite/error.jpg

    I've got as options:

    Security Type: 802.1x
    Encryption Type: WEP
    Network Authentication Method: Protected EAP (PEAP)

    All I have to do now, is click that "Settings..." button and select the
    correct certificate. But when I click that button I get that error (as you
    can see in my own screenshot or read in the starting post of this topic).

    Could anyone help me with this please?

    Try using TLS if you are doing Cert Based 8021x...

    Do you mean the "SecureW2 TTLS"? I tried that, then I get about the same error:

    Windows has encountered an error saving the EAP properties. Specific
    error: Unspecified error.

    Alright nevermind, I found the problem. It's this stupid SecureW2 third-party
    program that's supposed to help you with setting up a wireless connection,
    hehehe. It was even recommended by the technical notes of the server I wanted
    to connect to. It's probably just a Vista 64bit incompatibility.

    Thanks for the replies though.

    have Vista Ultimate 64bit and I also need SecureW2.
    Please help me.
