    Hello all,

    this is driving me nuts, also because of the fact that there seems to be no suitable information about that on the net.

    I have a computer here that should connect to a WLAN using "WPA2 - Enterprise". For authentication, a computer certificate is used.
    If I set the authentication method to "computer authentication" in properties, security settings, the connection is just established fine. However, after a few moments, the connection is terminated and the authentication method is re-set to "user- or computer authentication".

    This causes every connection attempt to fail with the message "A certificate is required for connection to [network name]".

    If I then go to the properties of the network connection and set the authentication method to "computer authentication" again, the connection is again established for a few moments - until that setting is again "user- or computer authentication" and the game starts over from the beginning :(

    What is causing that setting to be reverted again and again? Why is my manual configuration not saved?

    Thank you very much for all help in advance and kind regards,
