Microsoft Surface Wan-Miniport keeps failing.

One of our Microsoft Surface computers keeps losing it's Wi-Fi capabilities. We repeatedly have to disable the hardware and reinstall the drivers (every few weeks) just to get it working again. I've updated drivers, reinstalled drivers, disabled and re-enabled the adapter and more. I'm not sure what else to do here, as it seems to be a software issue, since reinstalling drivers fixes it. Thoughts?

When you go to safe mode how many network drivers do you see?  Have you tried resetting the Surface to factory default?

Resetting the Surface to factory default is not in our scope at this time. I ended up looking into the faulting drivers and seeing the network controller was faulting at the time. Restarting the driver cleared out the issue, so I looked for updates to no avail.
