Wireless Internet not working - antenna?

My wireless internet was working fine until I pulled on my mouse cable, and then it stopped working. I have an antenna screwed into the back of the computer to pick up the wifi. My best guess here is that my pulling on the cable somehow broke the antenna. Maybe it got caught on it.

I'm trying to figure out if I simply need to buy a new antenna, or if something beyond that is wrong. There is a light at the back of the computer next to where the antenna screws in, but it is not on at all. I don't know anything else about how the wifi works other than the antenna picks it up. It is finding no connections at all, so it it isn't a problem with my network.

If I hover the mouse over the internet icon at the bottom of the Windows screen, it says a network cable is unplugged.

Any help would be appreciated.
