I guess it is no great surprise but the minipci wifi card from an AppleTV installs and works straight away. Took about 5 mins to swap out the original and install the one for from my AppleTV. I use my AppleTV via ethernet so it does not need the Airport card.

Connecting a third antenna isn't too important. It will only improve the signal a small amount.
Mine works great with just the two connected.

When I installed my 4965 it was permanently on and SmartWi couldn't see it. Re-installing SmartWi allowed me to control it. It sounds like yours has defaulted to the off state so uninstalling and reinstalling SmartWi should let you switch it on.
