  • Hi,

    According to my experence and knownledge,  the surface pro was build for the client system, the driver might be not suit for a server operation system. When the driver not able to detect the cable network or wireless , it would shown as the airplane mode.

    If you'd like to test the windows server 2016 TP3 release, I would suggest you to install the operation system on a phsycial server hardware.

    Best Regards

  • Hi JustuslV,

    Thanks for your post, however as your issue is not related to the windows server but surface pro, I would recommand you to post your problem on the surface support forum:

  • I will post over there BUT..... since the surface works just fine(in every other OS) to me its a Server 2016 question. 

    I wasn't exactly clear that this is an issue in the current Server 2016 TP3 release.
