Your Surface Pro 3 or Surface 3 running Windows 10 1507 or 1511 is using an older Marvell wireless driver than the same device running Windows 10 1607. 


Windows 10 1607 includes a new Surface Marvell driver 15.68.9040.67, and that driver is installed automatically when Windows 10 1607 is installed on Surface Pro 3 or Surface 3.


To resolve this issue when using Windows 10 1507 or 1511, install Surface Marvell driver version 15.68.9040.67 by downloading the updated driver from this article. 

To do this, follow these steps:

Run the hotfix, and choose a folder where you want to unzip the files.


In the folder that you saved the files to, run the file SurfaceMarvellDriverInstall_160100_2.msi


Restart Windows when prompted

Note: If you are looking for this driver for Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book, please download the latest updates from Windows Update to install Surface Marvell driver version 15.68.9040.67 on a Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book.
