Steam Deck OS Beta Patch Notes: March 30, 2022
We have made updates to SteamOS and BIOS for Steam Deck in the beta channel, for those who would like to try it out and provide feedback.

You can opt into this by going to Settings > System on your Steam Deck, and selecting Beta from the OS Update Channel. Again, this OS and BIOS are still in beta and being tested, so only opt-in if you would like to try it out and provide feedback.

I have the same wifi issue on a 5ghz network, turning off wifi power savings mode fixed it for me.

How can we download BIOS updates after having installed Windows on the machine?
