WiFi and other issues addressed in new Surface RT update

As promised, Microsoft has released a number of new software patches for its various software and hardware products as part of its monthly "Patch Tuesday" update. These series of releases include 12 security updates that fix a total of 57 separate security-related issues for software such as Windows 8, Windows RT and Internet Explorer 10.

Microsoft has also made a new software update available specifically for its Surface tablet running on Windows RT. In a post on the Microsoft Community forum, an official moderator stated that this update will "address several 'Limited' Wi-Fi connections issues." Microsoft has been working to improve the WiFi features on the Surface RT tablet in previous software updates.

In addition, Microsoft said the Surface RT software update will have "driver updates improving performance with Windows, Volume and Power buttons." Specifics about the driver improvements were not revealed. The tablet will download the update automatically or owners can force the update to download.

Microsoft just launched the Surface Pro tablet, running on Windows 8 Pro, a few days ago. However, there's no indication that Microsoft has provided owners of the new tablet a software update for this month. It's likely that Microsoft will wait until March's "Patch Tuesday" to give those users their first software update, unless a security issue pops up beforehand.
