Firmware Update, October 24th 2013 - Problem?

I restored my SP2 to its factory settings today because I wanted to create a clean recovery disk. When I downloaded all available Important Windows Updates I discovered that the firmware update, dated October 24th, had removed my wireless adapter so I was unable to connect to the internet. Additionally, I was unable to roll back the update so I had to restore the device again.

I've now installed all updates, except for the firmware update.

Can anyone else confirm that they've had problems with the firmware update? Has anyone been able to install it successfully without it causing any issues?

I discovered this as well.  However just do a 2nd reboot and your wireless driver will start functioning again.  Something about that firmware update requires a 2nd reboot to get wireless working.

This is repeatable after a reset of surface pro 2.(i've done several now troubleshooting an issue with unexpected shutdowns and type cover issues).
