  No.  You need to enable 802.1x authentication on the wireless access
points.  Go read the access point documentation.

  No.  RADIUS might *use* AD to authenticate the user.  But domain
authentication is *not* done via RADIUS.

  It is a matter of dependency.  RADIUS depends on AD.  AD does NOT
depend on RADIUS.
