Let me start with

It's been a decade since I had access to this area. So your first call is to Apple to see if they have a patch or setting. Next is Microsoft to see if they have any updates.

As to WPA2 I don't see how that matters here.

Re: password

I googled this morning with terms like mac wifi password expiration message active directory amd learned 2 things:
1. WiFi by default is not active before login, but there are ways to change that. That might help.
2. Somebody wrote a script to check in the active directory how long a password still was valid and ran that automatically after the login

I can't find the details now on another PC. But it seems a known problem.
