We are setting up a wireless network in our office to be secured with 802.1x authentication. We would like the system to allow domain computers to connect to the wireless so that users logging in to the Active Directory can be authenticated. Is there a good way to dictate machine-based authentication via centrally-managed Group Policy?

Here are my steps for configuring this feature...

You should also configure 802.1x Wireless authentication under the machine configuration section of the GPO
