PEAP and domain logon

just to nitpick around a bit:

the description on p. 11 looks a bit confused (or I am). If the part
"Specify now the network[...]"  is meant to mean that the supplicants
are somehow checked to be in that subnet (talking about "Any
computers") this would be false imho.

As the further up  mentioning of "add a first Cisco switch" might be
conjured to mean it is needed, even if a broader definition of a
subnet of APs  (clients) follows, that would be false in the same way.
To put it short, check with freeradius doc (man 5 clients.conf) and
don't rely on the tutorial's say-so.

Afaik the suggested deselecting of "Validate Server Certificate" on p.
18 provides for not needing to install the root ca cert, but at the
cost of pretty much defying the "protected" in peap.

Sorry for not being helpful to your actual problem (anyways, it
doesn't seem to be a freeradius one *g*).  Some thoughts are:
- Did you check for the (lately more often discussed here) machine
auth possibility.
- Some evil registry hacks concerning EAPOL (caching, usage of credentials)
