    Should be dirt cheap on ebay, I assume it's just the antenna and not the connector on the actual card itself?

    Amazon had a bunch of these antennae on deal of the day yesterday, might still be there...

    Wanted to ask the same question. Bit odd that the antenna came off when it was screwed onto the connector. You sure there is not a connector inside the antenna itself?

    The cord within the cable is no longer attached to the part that used to screw onto the card

    Accidental damage by the user is not grounds for a warranty claim!
