    Why the different internet speeds?

    Can anyone explain why these two computers, running side-by-side at the same time on the same wifi connection registered such different speeds? My Surface Pro 7: A Dell: It seems almost deliberate, but I can't find the cause. David

    What causes wireless adapter to prefer n over ac?

    My home route is a D-Link DIR-890L. Since the beginning on acquiring the SP4, I noticed wireless speed to be rather slow, and later discovered that the onboard Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller connects to the router using 802.11n. I could only acquire 802.11ac connection if I...

    Wireless network connection keeps stalling

    Fasten your seatbelts; this has been a tricky one: I recently picked up a used OG Surface Pro a couple weeks ago and have been very impressed with it so far. I had no idea that this caliber of device could deliver so much performance. Unfortunately, my impression was short-lived, as I quickly...

    Max internet speed using wifi?

    Hi all, I was just wondering what is the max internet speed you have achieved using the surface book on wifi? I only ask as I have 350 meg broadband at home, but the max speed I can get through speedtest.com is ~230Mbps. Using a USB Lan adapter I get the full 350. Even my phone gets ~340Mbps.

    Are the WIFI issues with the Surface Book resolved? (before I buy)

    I need a new laptop now (current laptop 7 years old and very slow). I require a pen (I have never liked any trackpad of any company), 1Tb SSD, small form factor (13"), 2-in-1. The choices I am considering are the Surface Book with Performance Base, and the Thinkpad Yoga X1. The Yoga X1 is bit...

    Wifi/BT chip died and no MS repair option?

    Apparently my chip died, working fine one day and dead the next. Done everything from deleting the device, rebooting, disabling fastboot, doing a reset of the PC, etc. Called MS, they said I'd done everything and I'd have to send it in, but my only option isn't for repair but rather to BUY A...

    WiFi Fails to Start Periodically

    Ever since the last firmware update on my Surface 3, I've had problems where WiFi fails to start. This problem persists even if I reboot or cycle power.
