WLC 526 Express Mobility Controller Web Authentication Certificate Warning

When a wireless user accesses a Cisco wireless network controlled by the Cisco Wireless Express Mobility WLC526 controller and the controller is configured to use web authentication, the wireless user first gets a certificate warning page as seen below.  How do we stop this message and have the user go directly to the web authentication login page?  Is there a way to get the browser to download the certificate or can this feature be turned off?  This is a hotel, and guests are calling the front desk when this happens.


There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.

Inorder to validate a site issuing a certificate , client should be loaded with a certificate from same Certificate Authority. Else ignore the warning and continue to the site. If you want to know if the site is valid , click on View certificate on the warning page and see if it belongs to the website.
