Windows 10 upgrade–network instability on Surface Pro 2

One thing I noticed after performing the recent upgrade to Windows 10 was that my network connection had become unstable. It was losing the DNS server configuration on an irregular and intermittent basis. Renewing the DHCP lease on my wireless connection would correct the issue.

My Windows 8.1 install had Hyper-V enabled which modifies the network connections. Removing Hyper-V seems to have resolved the issue as I haven’t had any further problems.

If you’re upgrading a Surface Pro 2 you may want to think about removing Hyper-V before the upgrade, then re-install after the upgrade.
