Default Wireless Card Issues

Hey guys, I am new to the forum. I run a local computer shop and have come across a weird problem with a customers laptop.

The internal Wifi does not work, it has been reinstalled numerous times using different drivers and has neither the red cross, or the yellow star next to it. It installs perfectly every time without an error. The only problem is when clicking on the icon to connect to wireless networks it says 'No Connections Available' I have already checked for any wireless switches and there is one on the front which is turned on and lights up, there is also the FN + F2 buttons which says its enabled, but no matter what I try it always gives the same error. I have replaced the wireless card and the same problem occurs, whats even more weird is we have tried USB wireless cards and they install perfectly fine, but am still left with the same error over and over again.

Any ideas?
Its very confusing!

I would say you have a faulty port connection on the motherboard.

Possibly, but the USB one did not work either?
