Specs: Windows Vista
I just got an HP laptop from a work colleague, and sent it to my mate for him to wipe it clean. He told me that the wifi might be broken inside or might be disconnected, he didn't want to take it apart so I wanted to know how to check if it is working?

It would require either a special tool that can receive and transmit on the band that the card is or use another computer or wireless router or some device that is in the band or bands of the computer.

It may be that it is a special card too. Some companies use very special cards to prevent people on the street from using their lan. Some police and military have similar cards.

Might to to system information for more clues as well as bios and use hardware manager for clues.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
