My Windows 7 box is a ~5 years old Samsung and has no problem such as you report.
It is patched up to date as far as I know. I seem to think I had to authenticate
the first time I joined ietf-nat64, but that was no surprise.

I have seen no evidence of that. I expect it is a problem with the
particular WiFi device and driver built into your Windows box.
Go and see the friendly NOC staff.
