The OP did not ask for EAP-TTLS. He wants to do EAP-TLS, which is
built-in and does not require a third-party supplicant.

But yes, *of course* it should work just fine.

Basically, follow all those fine instructions for wireless, and do them
on the wired interface instead.

This may or may not need the "Wired AutoConfig" service as a
precondition on Windows 7 indeed.
