Replaced wireless/bluetooth card and wireless still not working
I have replaced the wireless/Bluetooth card in my laptop and the Bluetooth works but the wireless does not. Will replacing the display fix this or is it going to be the logic board that needs replaced?
Dan, here are two pics of the card, one of the old one and one of the new one installed in the system. Unfortunately, the new one has no markings on the label:

Go under the Apple to about this Mac > More info > Network > WiFi and tell us if it sees anything.
this is what is shows:
CoreWLAN: 11.0 (1101.20)
CoreWLANKit: 11.0 (1101.20)
Menu Extra: 11.0 (1110.33)
System Information: 11.0 (1100.1)
IO80211 Family: 11.1 (1110.26)
Diagnostics: 5.1 (510.88)
AirPort Utility: 6.3.6 (636.5)
At this point I think you need to try a different AirPort card. The original unit is the correct P/N. Can you tell us what happened when it died the first time.
I purchased the laptop a few months ago on eBay and the wireless didn't work when I got it, the bluetooth did though. I replaced the AirPort card with one that i bought from fixit.com and the same thing, no wireless but bluetooth did work. I then took it to a repair shop and they said that the wireless wouldn't work without spending a bunch of money to get it to work, so they put in a usb wireless device and it worked for a while. Now that doesn't work either, but if I use bootcamp and I boot to windows the usb wireless works there. I decided to try replacing the display as everything I read says that that is where the wireless antenna are, so I did that and still have the same issue.
There is an inductor coil near the adapter ribbon cable connection on the logic board that sometimes blows. If the new adapter was good that is what I suspect is the root issue with the AirPort card. As to the external USB port WiFI adapter that sounds like a driver issue if it works under Windows under BootCamp.
