So I recently bought a G73JH from ebay and the guy who sold it to me said there was nothing wrong with it. But when I get it the wifi doesn't work no matter what I do so I open up the computer and see that the black wire leading to the wifi card is cut. The white wire leading to the wifi is fine but the black one is cut. Is there any way to fix this. I looked up that you can buy antennae cables for $3 but do I have to disassemble the whole computer to fix it?

Oh and here is what it looks like:

Also I can't just buy a new wifi card because I still have to connect the antennae wires and the black one would still be cut.

i saw the people sharing here to change wifi card, you can look at it, also you can send back to asus service center to repair it.

I would try splicing it back together.

I would actually be okay with just buying a new 20 dollar wifi card but that won't work because the I still have to connect the antennae to the new wifi card and the antennae would still be cut.
