Th rephrase my questions:
- Should the pre-installed wifi card work in the other (WWAN) slot as
well, without any taping?
- Can the "hard blocked" state be attributed to a (partly) broken
MiniPCI Express slot, or does the fact that the wifi card is detected
at all mean that the slot is ok?
- Is there anything else I can do do unblock the wireless card? As I
said, the switch on the right side still appears to work because it
hard-blocks and unblocks bluetooth. It just doesn't affect the wifi
device. I just re-checked BIOS settings and in the security section
all devices except for the fingerprint reader are enabled.
I am very intolerant with other drivers.
