    Wireless Driver for Surface Pro 3


    I have a surface pro 3 that the OS became corrupt and i did a full reimage from the advanced startup options. Now i don't have a wireless driver. The wireless is showing under Other items in the device manager.

    I've tried downloading the surface pro 3 driver package from Microsoft but i get an error.

    So i downloaded the file again, same error. Tried opening the file with my work laptop (also Win10) and got this same error.

    Looks like the MS driver package is corrupt. I can't find a download for just the wireless.

    Any ideas?

    The Surface 3 Pro got Firmware Updates yesterday .... not sure if it would help

    Update history
    Microsoft Surface Pro 3 update history | Surface firmware updates

    File link
    Download Surface Pro 3 from Official Microsoft Download Center

    did you get the Surface3 Recovery Iso and use that?

    Yes i used the recovery image to do the reimage. I'll try the updates and see if that works.

    Edit: That seems to have done the trick. Drivers are now installing. Thanks!

    ok Great.... I have the non pro version 3 and check the Updates page regularly ....

    Forgot to say I think you are supposed to use the .msi files to install rather than the drv_package direct or the zipfiles .
