    Did anyone else not receive the firmware updates from Microsoft yet? Do you know when we should get them?

    I did that but all I received were security updates and generic windows 8 updates. I did not see anything specific for the surface.

    Interesting. They must be rolling them out slowly. I feel like the features they fixed are the only problems I have so I want the updates really bad. Haha.

    I didn't see a changelog either, but they listed it on the main page here in the story about the update.

    Update completed. Will test my BT headset to see if they now hold connection. That was my only issue.

    I didn't get one, either. I'm rather getting tired of having to turn wifi off and back on every time I wake this thing from sleep. They needed to be on that today.

    So my Bluetooth disconnect/reconnect was not fixed with the firmware. I removed the BT device. Then re-paired it and the problem appears to have stopped. Admittedly, I had not tried that before the FW update.

    Everything started up and worked perfectly for me this morning. I personally wasn't THAT much bothered by the WiFi bug, but being new to Windows 8 and instant on, waiting less than 10 seconds for a restart was fine for me knowing it would be fixed.

    I'm completely new to windows 8 as well. How long does it usually take for these updates to push out?

    I haven't received the updates yet either, but I did find this at the MS forums.
    The following updates will be listed as System Firmware Update 7/8/2014 within the Windows Update History.

    Surface Pro Embedded Controller Firmware (v.38.2.50.0) reducing power consumption, and enhancing system stability.
    Surface Pro System Aggregator Firmware (v. 3.8.250.0) enhancing battery life, and increasing efficiency and reliability in low power states.
    Surface Type Cover Firmware Update (v. 2.0.1021.0) improving trackpad reliability and system stability.
    Surface Accessory Device (v. 2.0.1012.0) helping the on screen keyboard (OSK) appear and disappear at the correct times.
    Wireless Network Controller and Bluetooth (v. 15.68.3042.79) enhancing system stability, reducing power consumption in low power states, and improving some WiFi connection scenarios. We will also issue an update on Wednesday, July 16, to further improve WiFi connection and throughput scenarios.

    Note When Surface updates are provided via the Windows Update service, they are delivered in stages to Surface customers. As a result, not every Surface will receive the update at the same time, but the update will be delivered to all devices. If you have not received the update then please manually check Windows Update later.

    Long press the Windows button on your desktop (or hold the stylus on it and tap the upper mouse button). Open Control Panel. Open Windows Update. Tap Check for updates in the upper-left corner of the Windows Update dialog box. See if you have any updates to install.

    Nope. No updates :/

    Ummm.... Nope. Still not fixed. I have to turn wifi off and back on every time I restart or wake from sleep. And this morning the only update is a defender definitions update. No other updates available, and I did not get a firmware update.

    EDIT: Now I see the above post that says not all Surfaces get the updates at the same time. That's not cool.

    Did anyone else get the touch/pen disabled with the last Firmware update?

    EDIT - It seems a Shutdown fixed it. Not a Restart, mind you, but a Shutdown. All is good, now.

    All I can say is, "wow."

    My SP3 is running perfectly now. Again, I thought it was "fine" before, but type cover, WiFi, everything is working perfectly for me now.

    I still haven't seen a firmware update show up in Windows Update. Why would it take this long to roll an update out. At the very most, I have only gotten defender definition updates. This is becoming very irritating.

    I really don't think the downloadable update pack from Microsoft's website is a solution. It doesn't have anything but the bare driver, no way to easily install them but individually.
