Most likely the Airport card has failed on the WiFi side. Sadly this is a big job to replace as you can see here in the IFIXIT guide: MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 AirPort Card Replacement

Depending on your country you'll need one of these:

Card, AirPort Extreme

  • 661-4766, US/Canada/Latin America
  • B661-4766, UK/Europe
  • J661-4766, Japan
  • KH661-4766, Korea
  • PA661-4766, Pacific Rim
  • Z661-4766, International

I was hoping that I didn't have to buy a new card but I guess I'm going to have to. Thank you for the feedback though.
