My wireless will not connect anymore. It runs off of a radius server. The reason I believe it's the certificate, is because a lot of my other certificates expired today.

Problem is I have no idea how to create a Self Signed Certificate. I did it in the past LONG ago on server 2003. I don't remember very well, and I really have no idea where to go at on SBS 2011.


Please help! Our wireless is down until I can get it going.

is the certificate role assigned to you new server ? You would have to add the role.

Once the role has been installed you should be able to request a new cert through mmc certifcate services snap in.

I added the role, I also created that add-in "based off googling things I was able to get part of the way" but how do we request a new one? And once I request it, what do I do from there? Sadly I kind of need a step by step process

The certificate role is entirely a different thing.

Self signed certificates are created in IIS just as you would on a workstation using Internet options in Internet Explorer

Check the following link out.
