Surface Pro 3 issues fixed with update

A new firmware update for the Surface Pro 3 promises to fix the Wi-Fi problems that have affected early adopters of the new tablet.

Some Surface 3 owners reported problems with Wi-Fi suddenly becoming unavailable, only returning after the tablet was rebooted.

A firmware update released earlier this summer reportedly resolved the situation for many users, but a further update released this week again claims to improve the reliability of the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers.

Also on the fix list are updates for the UEFI "BIOS", and tweaks of the embedded controller and system aggregator firmware, all of which will allegedly improve overall system stability.

The Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft's latest, and most convincing, stab at the hybrid laptop/tablet device. It may represent the final opportunity for Microsoft to make the form factor stick, with the Surface currently running at a huge loss for the company.
