I cant get a wireless connection on my IBM R40 using a Linksys G

\015 I cannot get a wireless connection on my IBM thinkpad R40 using Windows XP Pro using a Linksys wireless G router. Message says Windows unable to find certificate.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem with my R40 (2681) and a Linksys G router. The specs on IBM's/Lenovo's site indicate that the wireless card in the R40 only handles certain types of wireless encryption. The newer types (e.g. WPA) won't work on it and they are usually the standard on routers nowadays. My Linksys G router works fine with the R40 with WEP or with no encryption. Not ideal, but that's life with an old laptop.
