I've been trying to find out who manufactures the Wireless Ethernet adapter in the new Microsoft Surface Pro 2.  Can anyone help me and shed some light?
The Surface Pro 1 wireless adapter is horrible and will not auto switch to the strongest signal. Even if there's one bar left and you are near an almost full to full bar WiFi signal it will not automatically switch unless you manually connect to the strongest WiFi signal.

Thanks,
