This was the clearest explanation I have seen. It worked. Thanks.

Do you mean the clearest explanation of the problem or the clearest explanation of the fix? If the fix is to remove some Windows updates, I'm concerned about the possible security effects (etc.) of removing the updates.

Danny, I'm concerned that removing the KB updates might impair the security or some other aspects of the Venue 8 tablet computer. Can you assure me that won't happen? Also, won't Windows automatically look for updates and try to reijnstall these?

Mike the problem with those updates is that they were installed in the wrong order.  It's a Microsoft error that they've corrected.  They should be deleted, then reinstalled.

So the updates that are deleted won't compromise your security. Here are the functions of the updates:

KB2887595 - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/search/DownloadResults.aspx?q=KB2887595

KB2883200 - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2883200

KB2903939 - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/search/DownloadResults.aspx?q=KB2903939

T
hese updates are to improve the "Windows 8.1 Experience" mostly, and none of the patches say anything about security updates.

I am sorry, but none of those updates are causing the error with the venue pro 8 I have. The one that caused the problem. I cant think of it off the top of my head. My wife has the tablet now, but it was from an update that was released and downloaded today. 8/26/2014. it was the very last one on the update list and the most recent to show up in the programs folder. so I deleted it and fixed the issue. if it happens again I will update this post with the id number, but was not any of the above listed.

Also this issue is not corrected if it still happens since their corrective actions.

It still happens for me. I deleted the updates and if I'm idle for a while, the network adapter shuts down (including Bluetooth).

It's starting to really annoy the *** out of me that Dell has not provided a solution to the problem.

This did help with my wifi problem but my Venue 8 pro has another when it comes to seeing the infamous Blue screen of death when I try to access the cameras

I reset mine back to factory (I've lost count how many times I've had to do this now due to faulty windows updates) and it's all working as it should so there is at least afew more that our little tablets don't like
