There can be several causes for this, but the most common are overheating, bad RAM, and a failing hard drive or one without enough free space. You can use the windows tool to check your ram, and same for the hard drive with the disk check utility. For the overheating, you can use HwMonitor. I would normally link this for you but I’m on mobile atm.
 
Antenna are pretty simplistic devices. You should see much lower signal levels if they have a problem. It depends on if you remember what the signal levels where when it worked good. They may have been damaged but normally it is very obvious if you have a cable broken.

It could also be the nic card itself. Before you buy anything I would try some simple stick type antenna that you can connect directly to the card if you have some of these around.

You can buy similar antenna with 2 remote antenna for under $20 but if the card is source of the problem you have wasted the money. Those antenna where made back before 802.11ac was popular so your card may be kinda old anyway.
