Hi,

For all our users when they connect to their wired Windows 7 PC's with RDP, the 802.1x authenticated network disconnects, and therefore also terminates my RDP connection.

We use Radius with NPS  (combination of computer authentication and user authentication)

How can I get it working?

In open, they leads to the same conclusion as you shared. Microsoft does not allow 802.1x user authentication for remote desktop sessions. It is alright in local console login environment, but RDP connection differs via the same machine.

e.g. remote desktop initiates machine authentication and due to user mismatch earlier user gets logged out breaking remote desktop connection. Had it been the case that user
authentication is initiated and remote desktop user being the same as logged
in user, we should not face this issue.

Some suggested to simply manage these two issues, e.g. switched to using computer authentication only on network. It lessen the complexity to having to troubleshoot connectivity issues and making sure that the two certificates worked together. Or even using 3rd party 802.1x supplicant.

Or the "soln" as in the link of yours is similar to below
