Nope how do I go about that?
Have you created a wireless policy in active directory? In that you can set it for machine authentication only.
PEAP (I believe)
What are you using EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, PEAP, LEAP.
Yes I do and It's windows 2003 IAS, CA and IIS. It allows me to ask for a cert and then allows me to install but the wireless NIC still doesn't find the network even when I tell it the SSID and I have left it on broadcast while I'm setting it up.
Do you have a certificate authority, what radius server are you using to authenticate your users.
That's possible the other laptop I definitely needed to install the software.
Perhaps the installation software that came with your Laptops wifi drivers includes the support for WPA2 on XP and installs it as part of the driver installation process.
No 3rd party wifi manager just windows own. It's an intel wifi chipset.
Are you using a 3rd party wifi manager (probably provided with the WiFi card drivers) or Windows wireless Zero Config?
How would I Deploy the cert via Active Directory?
