romey, best to do is to disassemble the laptop and make sure that it has the antenna assembly installed. That is where those wire come from. Use [https://www.ifixit.com/Device/IBM_ThinkPad_A30#guideList|these guides] to work on your laptop. The part number for the assembly (reference marker '''4''') is 27L0684 [image|369994|align=left] Hope this helps, good luck.
