Microsoft has released an update for the Surface Pro 3 that should help fix problems users have encountered with its wireless networking. Users have complained about problems with accessing wireless networks, and the update released today should help fix any problems they’ve encountered.
Here’s the full list of improvements:
- Enables better throughput after waking from sleep and connecting to an 802.11AC network.
- Ensures Infra scan list is not empty while connected to a wireless display adapter.
- Resolves an issue connecting to Cisco 1242 access points.
- Ensures device reconnects properly to a hidden SSID using a 5Ghz DFS channel after waking from sleep.
- Adds customer-requested functionality to prefer 5Ghz connections when both a 2.4ghz and 5ghz connection are present with the same SSID.
In addition to the networking improvements, Microsoft has also released a handful of other updates for its pro-level tablet, including one that prevents the device from booting into a black screen when McAfee Defense Encryption 7.1.1 is installed, and prevents the system clock from losing time when the device’s battery falls below 3 percent charged.
