The subject match line verifies the certificate is from the authority it is 
supposed to come from - so that line would need to be changed to that
for your organisation's server - commenting it out will certainly be fine
with a "slightly" less secure connection in that it is possible though
unlikely someone could forge a certificate and you then connect to an AP
that is not verified. 

I will leave others to answer the other parts of the post - but I do 
remember that NM has problems with wired connections - I never use it 
myself.
