Figure 5-1: Request a certificate

Note: The procedure for obtaining certificates differs between a CA like Verisign and a
CA such as a Windows 2000 certificate server. Organizations operate Windows 2000
certificate servers to provide certificates for its members. For example, an administrator of
a Windows 2000 certificate server might provide a certificate to you via e-mail rather than
connecting directly as shown in this example.

Obtain the certificate which includes the public key from a Certificate Authority (CA).

Install this certificate in the Windows Root Certificate Store.

After installing the certificate on the Windows client, switch from the wired Ethernet
connection to the wireless adapter.


Verify that the “Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings” check box is
selected in the Windows XP Network Connections wireless adapter properties dialog box
Wireless Networks tab page.
