What is the advantage of the EAP-SRP protocol? Is it only used in wireless?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

EAP is a generic framework for authentication methods; it is mostly a way to encode arbitrary messages which incarnate an authentication algorithm. A protocol which uses EAP is automatically "compatible" with any authentication algorithm which fits in the EAP formalism, among which EAP-SRP-256 is just one possible method, which builds on SRP.
So EAP-SRP is not "better" than SRP; EAP-SRP is SRP, with EAP-styled clothes.
