    Surface Pro Communication fix, Alter the Power settings.

    We've had a few reports of HEX-NET users having coms issues with the Surface Pro tablet. We've found a fix requiring a registry tweak, and a power management setting. By default, the surface pro will only have balanced power settings with very little control over the management. The following instructions will re-enable the individual settings.

    Registry Modification: Script:

    Right Click, Save As

    Then run the file and reboot.
    Come back to this thread and see "Disable wireless Adapter power savings"

    If you are not comfortable running a registry script, follow the instructions below.

    Registry Modification Manual Instructions:

    Step 1: Open Regedit.exe (search from start menu is the fastest way to get to it)

    Step 2: navigate down the registry tree:

    HKEY_local_Machine -> System -> ControlSet001 -> Control -> Power

    Double Click CsEnabled and change the stored value to 0. Then press ok.

    Step 3: reboot
