Is this going to be a problem? Can I let one cable hang loose?
Check. Does your current display have 3 cables?
It will work fine with 2 wires - the black and the gray - just lose the blue - cut off the connector and trim the cable to where it passes under the left hinge (once you have checked everything works fine of course).
Don't trim anything. All 3 cables should pass through. Just tape over the one you don't use. The Broadcom card has 2 connectors and the Atheros card has 3 connectors. In the event you swap cards you don't want to have to get a whole new antenna assembly.
will it also work the other way around?
Okay, if my display has 2 wires and my card has 3 plugs, which ones do you plug into?
The First and the Third.
I went ahead and guessed that and it worked, but thanks for the confirmation.
I'm guessing that the signal isn't going to be as strong as it could be, but by how much?
