While working on something in my computer, I accidentally unplugged the cables going to my wireless card. I'm not sure if they were even meant to be touched, and after spending an hour trying to attach them again, I gave up. First, I was wondering if the cables were even supposed to be removed from the wireless card. Second, is there an easier way of reattaching them, assuming they were meant to be allowed to be detached? Thanks in advanced.

Those wires are your antenna wires. You need those attached. I am not sure but I think they simply snap on. Is there enough slack in the wires to remove the card, attach the wires, then replace the card in it's slot?

 

Do the end of the wires look like this?

Exactly like that, I tried snapping them on, but they didn't seem to stay. I'll try removing the card, and hopefully the wires will snap on as you said.

Were you able to connect the wires?
