    Carrying my Surface Pro3 from one room to another, my wireless network adapter quit working. Not sure what's going on, I checked all the pieces in the pipe - cable modem, no problem, wireless router, no problem. I can plug an ethernet cable into the SP3 dock, no problem. It's just when trying to use a wireless network connection that it doesn't work. The error message was something like Windows can't mount the wireless adapter drivers. I've tried uninstalling the drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless adapter, etc. I'm going to have to get my IT department to take a look, but for the short term, I bought a USB to wireless adapter. Works fine, again verifying the system is solid, it's something internal to the SP3.

    Anyone else experience wifi issues?

    the issues I used to get is wifi just disappearing, at least until I restart then the wifi comes back. I would recommend some solutions but you've tried them already

    Do you have a virtual WiFi adapter installed? If so, disable it. I had the same issue after installing ReadyNAS Remote. ReadyNAS Remote installed a virtual wireless adapter which interfered with according my wireless display adapter.

    Resolved. My IT dept reinstalled the drivers, back working again. No idea how they became corrupted.

    I intermittently get this issue. It eventually comes back after multiple restarts. I think I've read it has something to do with the Marvell adapter being very flaky.
