Enabling Wired Authentication on Windows
- Download this file, right click it, and select "Run as Administrator".
- Go to the Start Menu (Windows 7, 10) or Tile Screen (Windows 8, 8.1) and type "view network connections" and hit enter.
- Right click on your wired connection (typically called "Local Area Connection") and click "Properties".
- Click the "Authentication" tab.
- Make sure all boxes are checked on this screen, and that the drop down says "Microsoft Protected EAP (PEAP)", then click "Settings" next to the dropdown where PEAP is selected.
- Make sure "Selected Authentication Method" is "Secured password", and then click the "Configure" button next to that.
- Uncheck "Automatically use my Windows logon name and password (and domain if any)."
- Click OK to any open windows, and plug in the ethernet cord (or remove and plug it back in, if it was already connected).
- Plug in a network cable and you should be prompted for your logon and password.
