    My SP3 is still having wifi issues. It is never connected when I turn the device on (even if I have the "automatic connect" turned on) and it frequently disconnects when the device has been on for awhile.

    i5 4gb
    College wifi

    Can anyone help me out?

    Unfortunately, I don't think there's much anyone except Microsoft can do. Mine doesn't do it every time, but I would definitely say about 10% of the time.

    Also, by "disconnects", do you mean that wifi turns off or that it just disconnects from the network? Because I know how college wifi can be, and it may just be the wifi that is causing you to disconnect.

    Few people have this issue, including me. You need to uninstall current Marvell WIFI driver in Device Manager and go back to old WIFI driver. Also disable Hyper V if you have enabled it. This fixed it for me. Works every time now.

    "Disconnects" as in all the sudden it says the signal is unreliable and pages won't load. I know the wifi is fine because my 928 does pretty well on it. Also, when I game, I rarely get disconnected. It seems to be in certain situations that the connection gets bad.

    The issue is when the device goes to sleep and doesn't reconnect to WIFI when waking up. Give it a try with the steps above from first link.
