There is very little involved here. It’s either the AirPort board or the antenna.

How about following this guide MacBook Unibody Model A1342 AirPort/Bluetooth Board Replacement Follow the guide down to Step 6, then jump down to Step 10 to inspect the antenna cable connections on the AirPort board and the cables as they enter into the hinge area do you see any damage or the connectors are not firmly attached?

If you need a new AirPort here’s one source MacBook White Unibody Airport/Bluetooth Board (Used)
