should i expect them to be co-axial cables or are they something else ?
i have a laptop with a bent antenna connector,
and, i have an old broken laptop with some unused antenna cables, but those cables are too short to fit directly in the first laptop.
cant i cut a part of the end of the cables from the broken laptop to extend the first laptop i want to fix ?

You'll need to properly insulate the center cable, its insulator, the outer metal (ground) lining and finally the outside of that antenna.
If your machine has 3 wifi cables, try to disconnect the middle cable from the card and connect it instead of the "broken" one.
Not the best option, but doable.
