    Hi,
    I recently came into possession of a surface pro 3 that dropped and the tactile part of the screen broke. No problem I'll change the screen, but what's more problematic is the wifi/bluetooth not working. using a wifi adapter on the only usb port is not really a solution I like. So I've checked the drivers reinstalled them, reinstalled windows, still no wifi (network not found). Could it be that the wifi card broke, I think it's unlikely since it welded on the mobo, and the fallshould't have damaged it. It appears on the peripheral manager, and tels me it's working.
    What should I do
    Thanks for the help

    It could be that the WiFi antenna is broken, a component of the card which would probably not cause an error to Windows.
