Windows IOT WiFi Problems

The SD card on my RPi 3 running my TravelInfo app on Windows IOT died. I thought that it would be easy enough to get it all back up and running. I downloaded and installed the latest version of Windows IOT (10.0.15063.608) and published my project onto it. Everything seemed fine and the app seemed to work fine. I was using the internal WiFi adapter and found that the Pi kept dropping off the network. It was the same Pi and my code hadn’t changed so the cause must be to do with Windows. Googling around I found that some people had experienced this sort of problem when using the internal WiFi adapter, so I added a USB WiFi adapter to it.

Using the Device Portal I was able to get Windows to use this WiFi adapter rather than the internal one. The problem has now gone away 🙂 .
