    After using my SP3 all morning, I left it on and went out to run some errands. When I returned, I reentered my password and opened my email. NOTHING! No network and no network adapter, even in device settings. Where can I find the driver for the adapter so that I can download it and copy/install it into the SP3? This is going beyond Brain Farts!!

    Okay! This one is demoted to regular Microsoft brain fart! I did a hard reset (hold down the power button for 45 seconds) and the SP3 decided it had a network adapter after all. How or why it happened, I guess the Shadow knows.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Happened to me before. It's a driver issue that sometimes fixed on the current update but the returns again on the next update.
