Client issues ..

90% of my WiFi issues are client releated. This week after a long break I walk into client issue after client issue. Starting with new surface not reconneting coming out of sleep mode. Scanners that went live on a project that dont roam. Reports of a new laptop model just purchased with broadcoms arent connecting. 

 

You know what all these have in common ?

 

Not a single one came to my team for testing !

 

When will vendors who's very products rely on a medium for communciation actually test their products! 

 

As for the first one surface pro  .. I have one I use exculisvly for wifi tools. I havent played with the marvel at all. Is anything else having issues with the SP marvel ? I know there are a few blogs out there talking about it ...

Interesting. Surface Pro 3 is one of the clients we see the least problems with.

Re: Client issues ..

What I´m lacking with surface pro 3 is to be able to configure the NIC for verious scenarios lets say connect to 5ghz only, roam agressively, don´t use 11ac etc. 

 

I´m using the driver version: 15.68.3066.135

 

Anyone know if there´s another neat way to configure these kind of settings?

Re: Client issues ..

The January SP3 firmware update allows selecting the band, and also (hopefully) fixes the resume from sleep and HyperV issues.

Re: Client issues ..

Are you saying there is a January driver update for the NIC?
