Not sure what happened to your original question, but my guess is from the stuff you asked last time, it's either a bad airport card or the connector on the mother board is bad. Do you have another card you can try?

Is there a way to check the connection

I'm not really sure the best way to test the connection. Maybe somewhere there's a pinout and you can check continuity? If your card doesn't show up in System Profiler, it's gotta be either the card or the slot itself.
