Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday Fixes Critical Surface Wi-Fi Bug

The updates include a patch to fix Surface Wi-Fi connectivity issues

Plenty of users have complained that their Surface tablets get only limited Wi-Fi connectivity or cannot even connect to Wi-Fi networks at all due to what appears to be a software bug.

Although Microsoft remained tight-lipped on the subject, the company launched an update a few hours ago as part of its monthly Patch Tuesday cycle.

While the company hasn’t provided specific details on this update, a Microsoft Answers forum moderator said in a post that Patch Tuesday comprises “a few improvements for Surface with Windows RT.”

“This update provides increased Surface Wi-Fi reliability, improved connectivity in various scenarios, and performance improvements including support for Access Point names (SSID’s) such as ‘Eric’s Phone_1’ including non-standard-ASCII special characters such as: ñ, ö, ü, á, é and reduction in scenarios resulting in ‘Limited’ WiFi connectivity,” forum moderator Jordana_S wrote.
