I've got a Lenovo Thinkpad T400 and when I try to connect to a wifi it says no connections available I tried troubleshooting but it says there's nothing wrong. Isthere anything I can do?

Too little to work with here.

But I do carry USB WiFi sticks when I need to check such out.

What else would you need to know to be able to help?

Story, background, router setup, distance, more.

Sometimes you encounter a laptop that came with Windows 8 or 10 and they install 7 then you get your story. Here we have no story, In fact there's no sign it ever worked so it could be a warranty issue.
