Wifi Hardware Not Found After Repair

I have the unibody MacBook (A1342) from late 2009. After replacing the top case the wifi stopped working. Under wifi it says "wifi hardware not installed." The bluetooth is working. Any ideas?

Check the seating of the wifi card. Even if you didn't remove it, you might have knocked it loose or askew.

I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in. I believe the same card handles both wifi and bluetooth which is why it's weird one is working and not the other.
