    hmm; never seen that one. WiFi does not use certificate for logon. Access to a WiFi net is via a passphrase or WEP key.

    Suggest you use the wired connection to access the router config page and
    temporarily, disable encryption, save the settings. Now attempt a connection.
    If that works, again access via a wired connection and verify
    1. SSID (make it uniquely yours)
    2. channel
    3. enable encryption and set a (WPA2, WPA) phrase
    4. save the settings
    try the Network Wireless Wizard for the connection.
