Intel 2200 BG Connection drop

I have just bought a new lap top from Cyberpowersystem.com here is a link to the notebook http://www.cyberpowersystem.com/highendsystem/NTBKS42000.asp?v=d
The bare bones notebook is manufactured by http://www.uniwill.com.  And i have been having a lot of problems holding a connection with my card, i have the absolute latest drivers for it and i am 1 foot from my router, and when i use an external card i have not had a problem holding a connection.
I called cyber power and they had me open the back of my lap top and look at the card, and i have a black wireless anteenna going in to the AUX input to the mini card, and nothing going into the MAIN input to the card.  I have looked at other notebooks with the same card and other notebooks havve a silver wire going to AUX and the black wire going to MAIN.
Cyberpower told me that some note books only have 1 wire and that the wireless card must be bad, so they are in the process of sending me a new card.  I honestly do not think my card is bad, i think it needs the 2 antenna wires, 1 to AUX 1 to MAIN.  I just need another opinion.  Should there be 2 wires going to the card, and should it be sent back to them to run the second wire?  Or is it a complete other problem?  Its an Intel 2200 BG Mini PCI adapter

All the laptops I have used with the Intel 2200 BG adapter have had two wires, one to MAIN and one to AUX.
I am not familiar with that system and would not just second-guess their tech support staff but I will be surprised if it has only wire wire.
