I would start off by opening the system and checking the ribbon cable from the logic boar to the AirPort Card. Follow this IFIXIT guide: MacBook Air Models A1237 and A1304 AirPort/Bluetooth Board Replacement. If you find the cable is fully seated in both connectors. Do a good visual inspection looking for any nicks or cuts in the cable as well as any liquid damage.

If nothing shows up in your inspection I would try swapping parts out start with the AirPort card and then the ribbon cable.
