Surface Pro Wireless Update

See the previous post for the problem.

4-5-13 Update

I tried changing my power options as a first step. It was set on Maximum Saving for battery and Medium for AC adapter. I changed it to Maximum Performance on bothto prevent the system from trying to reduce power to the wireless in hopes that was the problem. So far, so good.

Screen Cap - Power Settings

The screen cap from the surface is small, so the path is  Control Panel > Power Options > Change advanced power settings. 

In the Power Options dialog box, click the plus icon to expand. Expand Wireless Adapter Setting > Power Saving Mode. Make the changes for “On battery” and “Plugged in”. Hit the [OK] button to make the changes. On the main Power Options window, you may or may not be able to hit the [Save Changes] button, depending on whether or not you changed anything else.

It worked for the limited time on was on my home network last night. I’ll update after the weekend when I spend an extended amount of time on my home network to see if it continues to be the solution that works for me.
