Gateway 450ROG WiFi Not Working

I recently dropped the laptop and broke the DC jack so I bought a new one an re-soldered it to the motherboard. After putting the laptop back together all seemed fine but then my WiFi died. The radio is not getting any signal. I've checked the antenna wires and they seem fine. Not sure if this is related to the earlier drop or not but I'm looking for any ideas on how to test the WiFi antenna or otherwise diagnose the issue.

    The WiFi card is being recognized by the computer. Wouldn't that not be the case if it wasn't getting any power?

    I went back and desoldered the DC jack then let the laptop run just on battery. The WiFi still has no signal but I don't think it has anything to do with lack of power.

    When you dropped it, was the card in it. This is kinda dumb but have you tried another card or simply another card in the same slot?

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
