I assume you mean ribbon. But I just ordered the ribbon from this site and followed the instructions to replace it. It was pretty straight forward
Basically the problem I had was my WiFi wouldn’t work. If I connected my laptop directly using a cord the internet worked, so I knew it was something with my wireless card. It would say that it was on but would not show any of the networks around me. and If i turned the WiFi off it wouldn’t let me turn it back on again (id just click the button and it wouldn’t do anything). So then Id restart my computer and sometimes my WiFi would work, sometimes id have the same problem, and other times it would say “No hardware found” (then id have to restart it again until it worked). This would solve the problem for a few days or as little as 20 min, it varied. I googled a bunch and tried a bunch of things on my computer like removing the Wifi and adding it back on but these only worked temporary (same as just restarting it). So then the next steps I did are in above comments, but yeah it was definitely the ribbon cause it has been working fine since
Just a little update for those that care, but I ordered the ribbon from the site and installed it on my macbook. I have had no issues with my internet since doing this so I assume i have solved my problem for now. Hope this helps
Good chance it is the ribbon. I replaced the board with the one I ordered from this site. Worked great for about 2 months then had the same issue. Figured out it couldn't be the board that was causing the problem. So I played with it and I think it's my ribbon connections. All I do is every few months when I start to get the problem I open it up and reconnect the connections on the ribbon and it's good for another 2 months. I assume a permanent solution would be to buy a new ribbon but I haven't done that yet
My computer was having trouble with the internet and after much research I came to the conclusion it was my airport/bluetooth board. A bunch of stores I went to said it would cost me around $200-$300 to replace ($100 for board and $100-$200 for installation). Then I found this cite and all of its manuals. I was able to order the part online from this site for only ~$50 and following the steps in the instructions was super easy. Would definitely give 10/10 for this website and manual.
I'd also like to point out I ordered the ifixit tool kit as well (just cause it looked awesome and I have no will power), but only the 2 tools mentioned in the instructions were needed. So no need to go overboard such as myself
