I have attached the specifications and service manual as well as 2 photos 1 to show you where the wifi card is and 1 to show you what the slot I think you are talking about is. Also, are you using wifi or hardwire ethernet. What do you mean by "it says it's connected" what says that, and what does it say it is connected to?

That is the exact slot in red

The slot on the outside to the left

That is a memory card reader (like an SD card from a camera) and shouldn't be able to affect your network connectivity in any way. If you give more details like wifi or hardwire ethernet, what you mean by "it says it's connected" as in, what says that, and what it says it is connected to then maybe we can do more trouble shooting
