Confirm the Wireless card is working? W700

#1 Post by targeteye » Sun Feb 23, 2020 7:06 pm

Hello all,
I just brought home a W700 from an estate sale and all seems to be working well except the wireless/bluetooth adapter. Bios show the adapter enabled but neither Windows 7 (what it came to me with) nor Ubuntu recognize the card. I've tried the wireless switch in both positions. Is there anything else I can check before i conclude I need a new adapter?

Thanks
Steve
