Noticing lots of WiFi problem posts which end up as duplicate issues so post them all in this thread.
Do you have your router in a fixed channel? If you are using 5G, are you connected to low channels (less than 40)?still have the issue there is NO network at all available on the device after sleep. This is not reproducible and a reboot resolves the issue. Seems sometimes the Marvel has sweet dreams and does not want to wake up.
Rolling back and re-install the driver did not help.
1. MS is correct. Depends on your router.hi all.
im in the uk and just taken delivery of my sp3 i5 256gb. its great all except im having wifi connectivity issues. there has been a few issues in this department.
1. My sp3 will not see or connect to certain access points. No idea why. MS support just told me that its because my sp3 is from canada and it has a different look up set for wifi channels. he advised that uk units scan a certail channel range and canadian scan a different set, overlapping by about 3 channels. ive never heard this and really cant imagine it to be correct. any inputs anyone?
2. My sp3 connects to my home wifi network. I've been trying to transfer 50gb of data to its 128gb sd card, i set it off and leave it alone. Im getting less than 5mb transfer rate. (my macbook is around 20mb) and after a length of time, the transfer just stops. no warning, just hangs. i have to reboot the surface.
3. The usb socket is extremely slack. Anything i put in there, if slightly moved, breaks its connection making my ethernet usb connection no use at all.
It seems that MS do have some serious issues to resolve.
i purchased this unit from ebay and have had it only 4 days. i've emailed the seller to ask for a return and refund. fingers crossed, i should get it.
