Early 2011 models appear to be the first to be marketed as 450Mbit models. That requires three antennas.

Some models that came before were subject to wire chafing, because the antennas were in the display-surround, and the antenna wires crossed through the hinge area.

So it is possible your antenna wires are disconnected or damaged.
