In a laptop, is there ONE location that the wireless AND wired connections are connected to each other?
I'm working on a computer for someone... he didn't like the windows 7 that came with it so he actually removed that and has been using Ubuntu. He loves it. He has been using it for a while with no issues but now the internet isn't working. He's pretty familiar with Ubunut and computers in general. Both wired and wireless wont work. He has another computer at home(desktop I think) that isn't working on the internet either(at least, I think that's what he said). I have his laptop here and I can't connect to the internet. It says that the networks and such are ALL turned on... So far it doesn't see my wifi.
I find it pretty odd that both wireless and wired would go out. Though, he did mention some storms a while back MIGHT have caused trouble? Everything else seems to be running smoothly.
I'm trying to figure out what to look at next and I'm wondering if there's a place on the motherboard that handles ALL internet that could be damaged. He has replaced the wireless card so it isn't likely that.
Anyway... just looking for some direction. I'm trying to google if and where both wireless and wired meet on the motherboard of a laptop but it's hard to wade through the results.
