        I already achieved this item with 802.1x auth support:
        https://twitter.com/hvandrie/status/875303380977164288
        Uses Network Access account for EAP-MSCHAPv2 authentication on the wireless connection.
        Whenever I can I'll publish the required coding on GitHub.
        Requirements:
        - WinRE media
        - WiFi drivers
        - C# application
        - Network Access account configured in ConfigMgr that allows access to wireless network
        Allows deployments over 802.1x Enteprise wireless networks using "Access content directly from a distribution point when needed by the running task sequence" option in deployment.

          I would rather see that WiFi support (Wlan AutoConfig service) introduced into WinPE, which is already present in WinRE for Windows 10.
          Also, I would love to see that OSD status messages are able to be delayed when connectivity is not present (yet) using a TS variable.

          I was able to utilize WinRE with some coding of my own to allow OSD to fully run over wireless with deployment set to "Access content directly from a distribution point when needed by the running task sequence" so it would not require pre-caching.

          See my tweet here: https://twitter.com/hvandrie/status/875303380977164288

          In the corporate environment I work for this resulted in bare-metal installations using USB media as start up to boot WinPE media to initiate the deployment in less than 70-80 minutes using a 802.11ac network. Which was faster than fast ethernet!
