    Hi,

    Where the WiFi sign usually appears,
    I have had now for some time an
    empty sign, if you will. When I click
    on it, I read the following:
    "WiFi: No hardware installed"

    What does it mean, and how can I
    fix it ??

    Thank you very much in advance,
    kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    Which MBP do you have? Does this happen randomly, or has wifi disappeared permanently?

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answer : ) !!!

    It is a MBP from early 2011. Yes,
    at first it was random for about
    two weeks and then it has had
    a permanent effect. It all happe-
    ned when I started to use the
    internet for two months, at a
    location different than mine.

    Kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    Have you ever dropped your macbook? The airport card could be loose inside.

    Hi,

    Yes, it happened some two years ago!

    If you think that, that is the problem,
    then I'll just wait a bit to get the extra
    RAM I just ordered and then go to the
    Apple authorized repair service and
    ask for it to be cleaned in the inside,
    for the airport card to be tightened,
    and for the new RAM to be installed.

    Thank you, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    P.S. It got a bit of dust into it, as it
    fell on a carpet.
