Check if certificates did not expired.

No, this message is from icd2. I do not know if eapd daemon (that
which doing EAP auth) writing something somewhere... check also
cmdline arguments if there is not some debug flag/option. It is bad
that nokias eapd sw is closed :-(

No idea.

> Would you be able to show me how to do this with the built-in wifi adapter of the N900? I had previously installed wpa_gui, but could never get the card to show. I'm guessing something keeps it 'locked' always. I tried 'stop wlancond' and 'stop csd' and never got any luck.

I think that wpa_gui probably not working on n900 due to small qt
screen, special hildon qt theme and other qt patches. You need to
write your own wpa supplicant config file. Then stop wlancond and
start wpa_supplicant manually (and then dhcp client...). In wpa
supplicant use wext driver, because new nl does not working correctly
on old 2.6.28 kernel.

And how to write wpa supplicant config file, see man page for
wpasupplicant.conf or use google...
