Windows 10 Surface WIFI

Roger Stumbaugh 1 Reputation point

We have a hybrid azure environment, but we only have local domain controllers, no exchange. I'm having a problem with wifi on most windows 10 machines and we use predominately microsoft surface devices. I'm not particularly sure how the automatic wifi is supposed to work in windows 10, but I have noticed that the connection has stopped being reconnected until a user logs in. Previously that wasn't necessary. This is causing an issue with a group policy I created for a software installation which requires a log off and a reboot. This policy runs fine with an ethernet connection, but never fails nor completes on wifi. I can force the gpo to run and see that it does run, but it then requires a logoff to complete and never completes. Is there anything in the registry or GPO wise that I can implement to help this connection in windows 10?

Also how does this setting affect things? Enable single sign on for this network. It definitely doesn't connect before logging into the domain.

    Hi @Roger Stumbaugh

    Is this behavior specific to surface devices and also have you tried connecting with different Wifi?

    If this is specific to Surface devices you can have quick look over the troubleshooting steps from here.Surface can find my wireless network but can’t connect,wireless%20network%2C%20try%20Solution%202.

    You can also try checking the enable Single Sign-on for this Network and see if that sorts the issue.
    -Open "Settings." Click the "Network" icon, and then right-click the name of the wireless connection you want Windows to use to connect.
    -Click "Properties" on the context menu, and then click "Advanced Settings."
    -Enable the option box labeled "Enable Single Sign-on for This Network." Click the radio-button option labeled "Perform Immediately Before User Logon."
    -Click "OK" in the Advanced Settings window to save the changes. Click the "OK" button in the Properties window to complete the Single Sign-On configuration.

    Hope this resolves your Query!!
