EAP-TLS Machine-Auth Windows: difference between LAN and WiFi

The behavior _is_ configurable, but as you have observed for your  
particular network, the default is not to attempt machine auth.   It  
is configurable on a per-network connection basis, I'm getting fuzzy  
on if it's adapter or SSID based.

If the OP is observing such behavior, he needs to figure out why (what  
turned it on, is it consistent or the same for all users) and work  
with that.
