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.

And the other one does not need to be connected. I see this inside Lenovo laptops we service.
