    Hey there, I have a 2006 MB 1.8GHz. The wireless always worked fine until this year when it started weakening, I had to be within about 5 feet of the router for it to work. Just a few months ago it started dropping the wifi and saying no wireless detected. I've been running it on ethernet for a while now but would like to get wifi again. Do I have to buy an official Apple Wireless card or can I buy any mini PCIE wireless card. Thanks.

    How do you know it's the wireless card and not the access point?

    you can always look on other world computing or find someone locally who fixes macbooks and find out if they have a replacement wireless card i had one for a 2007 macbook that was mini PCIE but i recently through it out.
