I have a Dell D630 nvidia with the Intel Centrino wifi (model 4965AGN MM1, Dell pn 0MK933), which is not supported. I want to switch it out with a Broadcom DW 1490, which is fully supported. I have a question though.

 

The existing Intel card has 3 wires attaching to it (black, white and gray), while the Broadcom has only 2 attachment points. Is that typical, and if so which of the 3 wires should get connected to the Broadcom card? Thanks.

Black and White. Should be indicated on the card too. A black and a White Triangle
