My antenna length is not enough to connect the
It is hard from your post to de-cipher your actual problem or request but I will do my best
Internal wireless adapters on laptops and notebooks do not connect to external antenna. They use their own and altering them could cause damage to the adapter or worse.
If you have had your laptop open and been inside t then you really should have noted the path of the wires down before disconnection
You could get the service manual from the support section on the dell website which may help you.
If you mean that you cannot connect to your router then you should check that the channel on your router does not conflict with anyone else nearby and that if it has an option for auto channel selection that you enable it.
Check that there are no other wireless devices nearby telephones, baby alarms, etc etc. Check also that there are not too many obstructions between your laptop and the router esp. large metal ones.
You might want to try moving the router to a better location too.

Cannot get on the internet
light should be green instead of orange. check in your device manager to make sure the driver is installed for the ethernet adapter, if it is then you know the motherboard is bad cause the ethernet adapter is connected to the motherboard.
If the driver for the ethernet adapter is not installed then go to support.dell.com and from there go into the drivers section, type in your model and then download the driver for your laptop and install it and then see if you can connect. If you do this and you still can't connect then that still means the ethernet adapter is bad and the motherboard would still have to be replaced.

If you've reloaded or upgraded Windows, you might not actually have the correct video driver installed (the display will work with the generic drivers in Windows). Go to www.dell.com
, click on Support and put your Service Tag in. That exactly identifies the hardware. Look for Downloads and/or Drivers, then scroll down to find the Video Driver. They're easy to download and install.
