    I have this same problem. Did you ever figure it out?

    My MacBook Pro is Mid-2010 15"

    I have replaced the Airport Card (twice) and the Ribbon cable and still get the same Wi-Fi: No hardware installed.

    Bluetooth works just fine.

    I am using a USB based Linksys AE6000 AC Dual Band adapter for wifi now.

    My problem started after updating to OS 10.11 El Capitan and installing 1 TB SSD. I replaced the DVD drive with original 400 GB drive.

    Wifi does not show in recovery mode either. I have reset the NVRAM/PRAM and SMC multiple times to no effect.

    Any help would be welcomed.
