More than likely, this means that the laptop is designed for wireless N functionality utilizing the 2mhz and 5mhz bands. However, you probably have a wireless card designed to operate on only one of those bands. You can *try* using just the grey and black wires to connect to your wireless card, but I can't guarantee that will work. The White cable is the "AUX" cable, so it wouldn't be usable on the card you have.
