    You probably installed a Dell branded card. Does it have DPN on it?

    Middle card is Toshiba, far right is Dell. I'm surprised the Toshiba card doesn't work for you.

    Buy a Panasonic specific card to have the Bluetooth and wireless work properly.

    I've had the same problem in the past.

    Is there a way to tell a Panasonic card from the label ?

    Look for vendor specific part numbers. T part number for Toshiba. DPN or d/pn for dell part number.

    You could write your own efi bios driver or flash the WiFi card with a generic Rom. Easier to get the correct WiFi card
