Steps to deploy Wireless Network with Group Policy for EAP-PEAP & EAP-TLS

Deploy Wireless Network with Group Policy for EAP-PEAP

Users will need to enter their Domain Credential to connect to the WIFI Network

Create a New Wireless Network Policy for Windows Vista and Later Releases under Computer Configuration – Windows Settings – Security Settings – Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies

  1. AES-CCMP. Counter Mode Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol (CCMP) implements the 802.11i standard and is designed for higher security encryption than that provided by WEP, and uses 128 bit AES encryption keys.

  2. AES-GCMP. Galois Counter Mode Protocol (GCMP) is supported by 802.11ac, is more efficient than AES-CCMP and provides better performance for wireless clients. GCMP uses 256 bit AES encryption keys.

Click on Advanced and Enable Single Sign On for this Network with Perform immediately before user logon

User will connect to the configured SSID = LAB automatically when they rebooted their Windows 10 machines with computer policy applied.

  • Authentication Mode = Computer Authentication
  • Single Sign On is grey out when computer authentication is selected

Computer is connected to WIFI automatically when GPO applied
