Internet Access on XP using External Network Card


Say, I have purchased a network card & have inserted it on a Windows XP Service Pack 3 operated PC. I can login to the internet however - every time I link into a new page, i get this message (See attached Doc)....What is it caused  by & how can I remove it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What browser are you using?  

(I am not sure it's due to the external wireless card).

The message indicates that you are going to a secure site.  HTTPS.  This does not really have anything to do with the network card.

Here are the possibilities:

1. The site is NOT a secure site requiring a certificate
2. The site has an expired certificate
3. The certificate does not match the URL you are putting in the address bar
4. You need to look at your browsers security settings

I do not have Chrome at my office so I can't check for you.

Check the date and time on your pc.  My guess is that your date is off which will throw a certificate error for every page you try to go to.

Are you really used to Internet Explorer? I would suggest you try with Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. You will forget Internet Explorer.

Google Chrome comes with in built Flash.
Try Opera (12.16) or the newer Opera 15,16,17...
