WLAN wire ripped - resulting in slower wireless internet

I have an Alienware M14X Laptop, and I recently discovered slower wireless internet access.

While evaluating my laptop, I noticed a wire ripped, and can only conclude that is the problem.

The wire is labelled Acon Specter 14" R wlan_X01[H/F]

Any idea how much it would cost to replace, if I could replace myself, or if it's - dear Lord - irriplaceable.

Thanks in advance for any help/tips.

Re: WLAN wire ripped - resulting in slower wireless internet

You can replace it your self, but you will have to take the whole laptop down to remove the old and install a new one.  They are run up into the lcd housing.

It may be a better option to buy a new lcd cover on ebay, it will have those wires intact and ready for you to just install your screen and cover.  Then install that into the laptop.

A better question though is how did you rip that wire?
