    Hi i am about to upgrade my old harddrive and thought while i have it open i might have a look at the wifi chip on the board? but where is the chip? for about 1 year now my wifi just wont connect to the router unless im like standing right next to it, even sitting on the couch which is litterally just about 2 meters away it still will not connect, at the moment im using a wireless dongle and all is dandy, but if i can just have a look at the board when i have it open i could tinker and see if anything has come loose a bit.

    Is it possible for something like this to even come loose?

    So guys any help will be greatly appreciated to explain where the onboard wifi chip is?

    You can't. The airport card is part of the logic board.
