Hello I am currentley deployed to Iraq right now and just joined and you guys are very helpful. I have a black macbook (about a year and a half old) and Im having some troubles connecting to the internet. The internet here is run by a username and password. You pay month by month. I used it the first month and worked great and now I purchased anouther month and have a new USERNAME and PASSWORD and my old username and password are trying to be used. Every few minutes a 802.1x Authentication will pop up and have my OLD username and passwod in so i delete and put my new in but when it pops up 3 min. later it starts all over again. I have not used my mac much and not real sure how to run it any help would be appricated. Thanks

First... Stay safe over there.

You're probably going to have to completely remove the old information that's stored about your network username and password. That info is stored in several places. Follow along below:

1. Navigate to /Volumes/MacIntosh HD/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/

and move "com.apple.airport.preferences.plist" to your desktop.

2. Open Applications, Utilities, Keychain Access.app. Look for your old Airport password. Delete it. (you first must click on the lock at the top)

3. Open System Preferences, Network. Delete your old location(s) and create a new one for "automatic" with your current information (userid and password)

You should be back in business.

Kind of a convoluted way to get things up and running again. But what I detailed above for you is actually the way Apple recommends doing it. There are other ways you can try by creating a new location each month you receive a new userid and password, but that can get you into difficulty.

Regards.

"verify ertificate"
802.1x Authentication
"the server certificate is not trusted because there are no explicit trust settings"

option: Show certificate, Cancel, or contine.

What exactley is this message telling me. I get it when i type in my New username/password

I found this if it helps: Properly respond to the "Verify Certificate" Dialog. In that dialog you choose "Show Certificate" and then click the "Always trust these certificates" check box. You then end up with a copy of the authentication server's certificate in your login keychain with both "Extensible Authentication (EAP)" and "X.509 Basic Policy" set to "Always Trust"

If you've been using Time Machine for backups, yes.

Also, did you try resetting your router back to its factory default? (You didn't mention you were using a router in your first post) The instructions I gave you should have worked. Try resetting the router.

Regards.

This is a wifi like you would use at a hotel. We do not use routers we just pay month by month then they give out username and passwords. I know the network is up scesne I am on my HP typing this right now.
