  1. Change network authentication method while disconnected.


    Recently, after mistakenly changing settings over work wifi, I'm no longer able to use the network or sign in anymore.After accidentally changing the network authentication method in network adapter settings, wifi now asks for a sign-in I'm normally just able to connect without signing in. When I enter my credentials I'm prompted with "can't connect because the sign-in requirements for your device and the network aren't compatible. Contact your it support person."My understanding is the wifi normally operates on a certificate-based system. I can't just change the settings back,&nbs

    Unable to change network authentication method

    Hello,

    I have a problem where I'm unable to change authentication method and therefore can't connect to the internet through ethernet adapter.

    Basically, I want to change my authentication method to SecureW2 TTLS because other methods don't work with my ISP. Screenshot showing the problem:

    Change network authentication method while disconnected. 9feed449-fc7a-4552-b96a-5f211eef329d?upload=true.png


    After clicking OK, I get this error (The changes to Authentication settings could not be saved). I also get the same error if I for example try to uncheck "Enable IEEE 201.1x authentication" or if I try to change anything under Authentication tab.

    Reinstalling Windows solved my problem a week ago, but now this error is back and I don't want to reinstall Windows again.

    Things I've tried:

    Reinstalling adapter

    Updating adapter drivers

    Restarting TCP/IP via netsh

    Reinstalling SecureW2 (I have installation program for this authentication method)

    Troubleshooting network

    Restarting network

    Probably couple more things I already forgot

    Any solutions?
