Wifi not working

#1 Post by karotlopj » Thu Jul 06, 2023 11:09 am

I have an X61 on which Wifi does not work. I guess either the switch is broken or the card doesn't work.

Is there any way to isolate the problem?

Tape or cover pin 20 on the WiFi card's mini-pcie edge connector:

If it works, then it means the WiFi switch is broken.
