am in the process of switchen users to EAP-TLS SSID for this I am using a GPO to configure Wireless Network Profile.

I have selected the option Connect automatically when this network is in range but this doesn't seem to switch the user to the new SSID automatically, the user still has to click the new SSID the first time, the checkbox for connect automatically is indeed no longer available this is already set via the GPO.

Is this the behaviour of this setting just setting the checkbox for the user but the user still has to click the SSID network the first time to connect to it?

Is there an option to auto connect to the SSID without any user intervention?

Or maybe this is related to other profiles already on the laptop not managed by GPO.
