    So i got a thinkpad 8 today and after updates it is having some serious wifi issues. So wifi will work then if I reboot the tablet the wifi will come up and show no network found. I have to unsintall the wifif adapter from device manager refresh where it installs again. Do another reboot and it happens again. This is obviously a deal breaker for me just spent a ton on it and do not want to put it on Ebay.

    How do I get it so wifi stays on after reboot? It seem to do fine until some hardware updates

    To add more oddity to this, if i do a shut down the wifi comes up with a red X saying no networks, if i do a restart the wifi comes up fine and auto connects. WTF

    Also if I go to device manager and disable the WiFi card and re enable it it starts working again.
