All Local Area Connection settings that are configured by using the Wired AutoConfig Service (dot3svc), and then additionally configured by using either Wired Network (IEEE 802.3) Policies or scripts that employ Netsh LAN commands, apply to all Local Area Connections on the computer.
The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:
Wired AutoConfig (dot3svc) is a service that configures the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X port-based security settings on IEEE 802.3 Ethernet adapters. Wired AutoConfig operates in conjunction with IEEE 802.1X authenticating switches and Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service (RADIUS) servers to perform 802.1X client authentication for access to IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks. When enabled, Wired AutoConfig settings apply to all IEEE 802.3 Ethernet network adapters on the computer.
Wired Network (IEEE 802.3) Policies is applied to all Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 Ethernet Local Area Connections on the computer. Wired Network (IEEE 802.3) Policies, Group Policy, and client-side extensions are used to configure IEEE 802.1X authenticaton settings and network connectivity settings. Wired Network (IEEE 802.3) Policies specifies the settings that enable domain member clients to connect to IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks by using 802.1X authenticating switches.
