Surface Pro 3 Limited wifi problem

Mark Lenox asked on

I just bought my Surface Pro 3 yesterday and have installed all updates. After connecting to my home WiFi network, each time  I press the power button putting it to sleep, then reawaken it, the WiFi goes to "Limited", and I have no internet connection. I must then go to the WiFi connections settings, disconnect and reconnect to the network, and it works. This is a MAJOR and UNACCEPTABLE pain in the neck for a machine I paid $1400 for!

Moderator Edit: Remove the " marks from title as a bug exists that prevents subjects with "'s from showing up in search.

It CAN be done

the only things I can suggest is uninstalling the driver in device manager,
restarting the Surface (which should reinstall the same driver) and seeing if
things improve.
 
next Tuesday is "patch Tuesday" - I don't honestly know if there will be a
wireless driver update and firmware for the SP3, but...
