WLAN AutoConfig Service stops randomly


New Member
I have a surface rt and recently i noticed that periodically my wireless would go out. Not just no signal, but it wouldn't list any available connections. Its not frequent, but atleast twice a day. I did some research, and someone said to check if my WLAN AutoConfig service was running. Next time it happened i opened services, and noticed that the WLAN AutoConfig was stopped. The startup type is set to automatic, and everything starts working again once i tell it to start. Before i knew about this it would come back, it would just take a lot longer. Any one have any ideas as to what is causing this service to randomly turn off? Is this an issue i should ask in a Windows 8 help section instead of Surface help? Thanks.
