iMac 27 - inch, Mid 2010

Software OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)


I cant seem to fix this message when going online, nore have I managed to find any help with it.


everytime my imac27 2010 sleeps it goes offline then this message appears...


"select a certificate or enter a name and password for network (whatever network im trying to connect to)"

it continues with...

"no certificate selected"

"account name"



as a result I have to play around with "join other network" every time I want to join my own network.


it was so anoying that I decided to reinstall everything from scrach, so I backed everything to time machine. but I couldnt restore as im on snow leapard and dont have an original disc with me. I moved countries so the apple store isnt round the corner any more :/ (disc would need to be shipped in)


whats interesting in my mac did not have this wifi conection problem when I took it to another location. only from home. But every other devise does not have this problem even at home...



any help really appreciated

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
