WiFi disables randomly

Running 11.4.3
We have a Communication Hardware Policy that disables wifi when the computer has a wired connection.
We do not have a WiFi policy.
Windows Endpoint Security Policies
Communication Hardware Policy
Communication Hardware Settings
1394(FireWire): Disabled
IrDA®: Disabled
Bluetooth®: Disabled
Serial: Disabled
Parallel: Disabled
Dialup/Cellular:
Wired: Enabled
Wi-Fi ®: Disable Wi-Fi When Wired
Virtual: Disabled
Sometimes the Wifi is being disabled on the machines when they are not connected Wired, and the the only way to fix it is to enable the Wifi adapter which required Administrator privledges. We have not been able to replicate the problem and we have not been able to convince anyone to leave their laptops with us to try and troubleshoot with you.

No Clue, but granting the "Load and Unload Device Drivers" to the "Users" group may remove the need to require and admin password to resolve.
