Introduzione

Wi-Fi on the fritz? Just can't get onto that free coffee shop internet no matter how hard you try? You might need to replace your AirPort Board. Follow this guide to learn how.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

    • Wedge your fingers between the upper case and the lower case.

    • Gently pull the lower case away from the upper case to remove it.

    • The lower case is connected to the upper case with two plastic clips near its center.

    • During reassembly, gently push down the center of the lower case to reattach the two plastic clips.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector straight up out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Be sure you lift up only on the connector itself, not the socket, or you risk permanent damage to the logic board.

    • Bend the battery connector up out of the way to prevent accidental contact with its socket during your repair.

    • Wedge the tip of a spudger underneath each of the antenna cables, near their connectors and pry up to disconnect them from the AirPort board.

    • The three cables are coded with black sleeves of different lengths. During reassembly:

    • Connect the long-sleeved cable to the center socket.

    • The short-sleeved cable connects next to the screw.

    • The remaining cable has no sleeve, and connects in the last empty socket, next to the fan.

Is this responsible for wifi? I re-did my screen and fixed it from blackening, but the wifi icon says "Wi-Fi: No hardware installed". Is this part responsible? If I replace it will I get wifi back?

This isn’t the solution you are looking for, but what I did to my 2015 mbp when the wifi card started failing was getting an external wifi adapter. It’s cheaper, small enough, and works. I got this type: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/downl... but any type works, this one is just small enough to be unassuming.
