When I run the script below with an elevated cmd prompt, it generates a null error in line 5 character 1 " file not found.   The file is there. I can run the cmd using a cmd window or similar using a bat file. It just will not find the file using vbs. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

( *this is the line) objshell.Run "%compsec% /c netsh lan add profile filename=%systemdrive%\windows\system32\LocalAreaConnection.xml interface=" & Q & "Local Area Connection" & Q, 0, True



Full script for SCCM OSD 8021x deployments.

Set objshell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
 Q = chr(34)
 objshell.Run "%comspec% /c net start dot3svc", 0, True
 objshell.Run "%comspec% /c netsh lan set autoconfig enabled=yes interface=" & Q & "Local Area Connection" & Q, 0, True
 objshell.Run "%compsec% /c netsh lan add profile filename=%systemdrive%\windows\system32\LocalAreaConnection.xml interface=" & Q & "Local Area Connection" & Q, 0, True
 objshell.Run "%comspec% /c netsh lan set eapuserdata filename = %systemdrive%\windows\system32\uprofile.xml allusers=yes interface=" & Q & "Local Area Connection" & Q, 0, True
 objshell.Run "%comspec% /c netsh lan reconnect interface =" & Q & "Local Area Connection" & Q, 0, True
 objshell.Run "%comspec% /c del %SYSTEMDRIVE%\windows\system32\uprofile.xml /Q", 0, True

Those look promising in testing from a cmd prompt. I will put it all together in  SCCM tomorrow and test.
Thanks again for the help!
