I recently have trouble with my wifi not working issues on Surface Pro Windows 8 tablet. WiFi is disconnected and turned off, and become greyed out in the metro interface. When I access the network connection panel, amber “Wi-Fi (Off)” is listing in the indicator. Try pressing FN-F12 combination from type cover, turning Airplane Mode off/on and restarting the Surface but still not working. All drivers are up to date and running Windows troubleshooting failes to solve the problem. Is there a solution for that?
How to Fix Windows 8 WiFi Off problem on Surface Pro* Swipe in from the right-panel of start screen to open charms bar.
* Tap/Click Settings > Change PC Settings at the bottom of the bar.
* Select “Wireless” within the PC Settings, and toggle the Wi-Fi back on. That should be caused by airplan mode.
Now my Surface works perfect for three weeks.
