Broken connector while connecting 7260 ngw m.2 format. I am unable to connect both antennas to wifi card because one is damaged. I have only the white wire connected to main. It seems to be working fine. reporting 500mbps and full DL speeds of 60 on speed tests. What am i missing from not having the black wire connected? bluetooth?
In this situation, we strongly advise you to contact the PC manufacturer, or the place where you purchased the wireless adapter.
We would like to mention that the end user is not authorized to install Intel® wireless adapters. They can only be installed by the PC manufacturer or its authorized representative.

Using a single antenna may cause interference when using Bluetooth/Wi-Fi, but will also limit the connection since both antennas are used by Wi-Fi to increase the amount of spatial streams.
