Did you pay roughly US$100 for the certificate? If I may ask? And that would be a low-end cost. That would basically tell me if you specifically purchased a wildcard certificate and that's the low-end cost. If it was a cheaper SSL certificate it more than likely assumed the wildcard was www since the cheaper certificates usually cover www.example.com and example.com.

It's also not just the installation on your server the authority certifying must recognize the certificate as a true wildcard domain certificate.
