Possible Airport trouble and Still no sound!
I noticed the connector for my Airport Antenna is disconnected, i went to look for my lost of audio problem when i discovered it, don't know exactly how that has come to be, but as indicated in earlier posts I received the unit semi open as the back of the unit had a gap - top cover from lower portion. Since i got it back from the tech I gave the unit to, to adjust the top cover so that it will seat properly, i've had lost of audio (and up to a few minutes ago and two restarts no audio device, (as per the system info), now it's seeing the internal audio device but still no sound.
About the Airport connector - I have noticed the unit struggling to pick up wireless traffic, while my dell m1210 does it easily, it may be (and it's purely just my guess) that the card will work sans the antenna but will receive lack-luster reception or at best would perform well in a limited range with no interference, but with the antenna connected the range will be extended for a better overall performance. Is this right?
P.S. I was really hoping that on the discovery of the disconnected cable that it was part of the sound so I would have arrived at my own solution but on checking here (IFIXIT) I realized that it was related to the Airport antenna instead.
