    So I picked up a used late 2008 macbook pro off ebay, and the owner reported the wifi wasn't working. After inspecting the logic board I found the following burned out area next to the airport connector.

    I was hoping I could replace these components to see if I could get it up and running. Does anyone know what components are missing, and where I might be able to get replacements?? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ifixit.com is a batter place for stuff like this.

    Looks like a little surface mounted resistor (PITA to replace).

    0.5 ohms?

    Were you able to figure out what that resistor value was? I had the same thing happen to me after replacing my display. The ohmmeter is reading 0.5 ohms on the identical layout just above it (the parallel resistor and capacitor) which doesn't seem likely.
