E520 problems after spill - cannot detect wifi network

2017-12-31, 2:37 AM

I thought the wireless card was part of the motherboard and could not be replaced or upgraded. I get messages from Verizon all the time telling me to upgrade my network interface card, and no videos play in synch. Is there something I can do about this? (Apart from my wifi radio not working at the moment.)

Re: E520 cannot detect wifi network

I hope I'm not breaking rules. But I would really love some help.  My Thinkpad Edge E520 is -- well it's keyboard isn't working.  And I'm using an external USB.  I had a small spill. I let the keyboard dry for a week, and then reinstalled it -- and it did not work, and when I went back to the USB keyboard, my wifi radio was turned off.  And of course the key to turn it back on is on the non-working keyboard.  I will replace the keyboard, but can't for a week or more.  Any ideas how I can turn the wifi radio back on, without the key?
