No proxies here. I think the key thing was the NetworkList\Profiles, the Wpad settings are just populated with the same value if not explicitly set?

Nope, even after two reboots the connection (and, bizarrely, the renamed wireless connection) still show 'EData'.

I had to re-enable the wireless adapter and could change this value, but even after doing this the old name stuck with both the wireless and wired connection. Can't reboot now to test what might happen then, and this still doesn't explain why Windows would make a wired connection inherit a wireless network name.

There are no DNS suffixes listed, nor have I ever had cause to change any of these settings.

Sorry, should've clarified this. PC is not on a domain and the workgroup is 'WORKGROUP'.

Sorry, I've had a good dig about and it doesn't seem there's an easy way to get this status if it is changed via the keyboard shortcut. Perhaps someone with better Powershell knowledge can help.
