authenticate by profile instead of machine name

Because network users authenticate by profile instead of machine name, everyone must build their initial profile on a hardwired connect.  Once the profile is built, users can log-on wirelessly.  Is it possible to build the initial profile via a wireless connection?
Thanks

wireless isn't a problem if it is on the same network, and uses the AD server for DNS.

If the machine is in another location, such as at home or on a mobile network - then you need to connect to a VPN first, then login.
Assuming the machine is on the domain and you have VPN configured, when you create the vpn connection on the client machine there is a box - make connection available to all users - then you will be able to log in via VPN connection on the initial login screen - this will then create a profile as you wish.
