I am using a SurfacePro 3 with Windows 10. As many others have found the wireless access stability for Windows 10 is pretty fragile. Some advice has suggested this can be made better by adjusting the Firewall rules. I opened the app Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. This is a very dense set of options, calling for a lot of knowledge about network access and security.
Does anyone have advice about how to choose optimal settings for public and private networks, and networks accessed through a domain? I am concerned that I have reduced security somewhat on public networks because in order to get the network to work at all I had to enable a number of access rules that the default settings set only for private networks.
Domain especially is causing me problems, because I work in 2 research libraries, and think that my network problems (no access, even when the network is recognised and saved) in them may be caused by domain issues. ?When I come home after trying to resolve the issues in the libraries, my home network falls over several times before settling down and working properly. To achieve this I need to do many restarts, and network adapter troubleshoots. It's frustrating and unproductive.
