    Just resolved a wifi (wlan) issue with my G1 mk3.
    The wifi got disabled somehow. Like if it had a hardware switch.

    Drove me nuts trying to figure it out. Tried 4 different wifi cards. Intel 8260, which was working in it. Then I tried a Intel 7260, which like the 8260 does not show in bios. It failed to be enabled also.
    I tried a usb wifi card which would not work either.
    So I bought a Intel 7265. That is the original card model and it shows in bios. Bios says enabled and BIOS diags say wifi is working fine.
    It was disabled according to the OS also. Argh..WTF??

    I had been running MX 18 on it and thought MAYBE it was an OS issue. I actually doubted that since the wifi was still disabled when I booted a usb stick. I tried several Linux, win7 and win10.

    I thought maybe the motherboard went south....

    My friend Sheepman! had a couple ideas to try.
    Checked concealed mode--no joy--
    Reset bios to defaults--no joy--
    Try power pull reset--no joy--

    Last idea was disconnect cmos battery for an hour or so.
    BINGO that solved the problem.
    All I can figure is about a month back MX18 had gone into hibernation on me while I was backing the system up. I did not know MX 18 has hibernation on by default.
    Hibernation must have turned off the wifi card and nothing would turn it back on until I unplugged the cmos battery.

    The keyboard has been re assembled and would need to be taken apart for any other photos.
    Not really a pcb it is just the connector if I remember correctly.

    Here is your photo.
