    Welcome to the forum Rgrove86.

    Do you have Windows 8 Pro version to connect to this Domain?

    I thought you said you could not connect to this Domain with the Windows 8 Pro machine?

    I would talk to the Admin of this Domain, there may be certain security requirements in order to connect wirelessly or it may not be allowed at all.

    Are there know issues with win8 and 2008 server? I don't think the win8 machine is getting the certificate.

    The Domain may require that you connect using WPA 2 Enterprise credentials in order to pick up the certificate.

    You might alto try going into Device Manage and open Network Adaptors, disable the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Debug adaptor which is only used for setting up a Hosted Wireless Network.
