Proxy set through gpo and WPAD file

Win 2008r2 server and xp clients
--
I have a single flat network, Internet access is through a proxy server(s). My wireless clients (all off domain) get proxy settings from a dhcp wpad file and my wired clients (all on domain) get proxy settings from a group policy, they all use the same dhcp server. The trouble is they need to use difft proxy servers but the domain clients seem to be getting both settings and this makes some things to not work. Can I remove the 'auto detect settings' tick in internet explorer through gpo? I can only see an option to enable it. Is that's what's making the client get both settings?

Open "Group Policy" window. Click "User Configuration"->"Windows Settings"->"Internet Explorer Maintenance"->"Connection"
Double click "Automatic Browser Configuration" and UNCHECK "Automatically detect setttings"

that setting is already unchecked. it is probably still ticked on the client because it is on by default and nothing is telling it to turn itself off? how can I untick this setting?

The system we are using requires the use of WPAD.

So to clarify...

You want all your machines to use WPAD.  

And the WPAD.dat file specifies which proxy server to use?

The GPO must enable the IE "Autodetect settings" on all machines?

But the clients on the domain (getting GPO) do not use the WPAD and do not want autodetect set. This is what I am trying to disable via GPO.
