Default XP won't connect to network, vista will

At my sixth form we are allowed to use our own laptops, we have just worked out how to connect tot he network and get internet - using a certificate. The certificate must be installed to the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store in order to work, this is fine on both vista and xp machines. However the problem occur when actually connecting, vista laptops ask you for you username, password and logon domain, this comes up in a small window, the xp laptops do nothing and just continue to try to connect. Any ideas on how to get this prompt up in xp? Thanks for any help.
