Surface Pro 3 Live USB - Wifi Issues

Post by pez4040 » Tue Nov 13, 2018 10:20 am

I have been playing around with Linux Mint 18.3 and 19 for a few months now in a VirtualBox. Things have gone well and I wanted to see how it worked on my real hardware (Surface Pro 3). I had a USB External Harddrive that I loaded the Live USB system on. I booted this without incident. The desktop was sharp and the system connected to my wifi network without incident.

Just as I was thinking it may be time to get rid of windows, the wifi connection drops. I checked the network connections and there are no wifi networks available. I clicked Rescan for networks and nothing happens. Turned wifi off and on, and it said wifi unavailable. I could never get a connection after this happened. I could get a connection if I plugged in a cable from the router. Going back to windows, the network connected fine. All other computers on the network are working also. Any ideas what to try?
