Microsoft released another firmware upgrade for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. Among other things, this update will attempt to address the WiFi disconnections and slow connection issues users have been reporting. I’m glad that Microsoft acknowledge the issue and provided a prompt fix for it. Up until now, users have been trying their own fixes from manually updating the WiFi drivers to changing the WiFi adapter power settings. See below the steps for manually applying the update.
How to Install the Surface Pro 3 Firmware Update
To manually install the Surface Pro 3 firmware update, perform the following steps:
- Swipe from the right edge of the screen and then select Settings. If you’re using a mouse, point to upper-right corner of screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then select Settings.
- Select Change PC settings, then select Update and Recovery.
- Select Check Now. After a moment, you will see if there are any available updates.
- If there are updates available, select View Details.
- Select the updates you want to install, and then press Install.
After the installation is complete, you may need to restart the tablet.
I just applied the update to my SP3. I’ll provide an update to soon to let you know if WiFi is fixed.
