That's not clear. Why would that break EAP if the workstations are 
sending a different Login? It already does, depending on LAN or WLAN 
Logins. I don't mean some kind of rewrite or redirect inside of 
Freeradius. Using Linux I can send whatever I want as the loginname.

I have now a more or less complicated regex rule in the radsecproxy, but 
I thought it's more elegant to unify both logins.  I thought doing it in 
the profile-xml-file of the LAN connection in Win, but unfortunately 
it's not the right place for it. At least all official ressources I can 
find from MS, are not pointing out how to do that.
