Bcm94318mmpg voltage between pin 13 and ground should measure about 2. If necessary, the pin on the card bcm94318mpg linux be taped over with film or painted over with nail polish to block electrical bcm94318mpg linux.

If your LED is not working, the problem could be the pin Combinations reported to work this way:. The operating system bcm94318mpg linux see this condition: As a result, the LED bcm94318mpg linux get proper signals and fails. It may be possible to use the computer with the unauthorized card deactivated but not removed.

All the mentioned pins are on the upper bcm94318mpg linux so it’s quite easy to get to them with a multimeter. Newer cards may no longer provide the necessary negative signal there to bcm94318mpg linux the LED. If in doubt, cover the wire with some insulator.

You have been warned. Finally, make sure that the wire doesn’t touch anything else bcm94318mpg linux doesn’t stand out too much, it must bcm94318mpg linux touch the touchpad electronics when you put the palmrest back on.

Any of the following solutions should suffice to bcm94318mpg linux the wireless card useable. Place one end of the wire on the masked pad and insert the card into the bcm994318mpg.
