The wifi is not connecting, it says you are not connected to a network. the driver and everything is find in device manager but. i dont see an icon for wifi networks connected / not connected status in the taskbar.
I've been having the same problem here at work (Microsoft) with 15 machines in my lab and I just figured it out after wasting two frustrating hours trying out different drivers. If you press F10 to boot it into the BIOS at start-up and then arrow over to the Advanced tab, there is a place where you can enable the WLAN (F5/F6). Hit F10 to save and the WiFi key should light up as Windows is loading. If it doesn't, try pressing it and it should.

above the start icon which is the window icon on the bottom left is a menu and on that menu is device manager, click device manager and it shows list of devices, on the list is network adapters. Open that branch by clicking on the > You should see the network adapter. If there are any ! or X or it is marked as unknown then you have driver issue. You can use another computer to download the driver and install it.
You can check the wireless adapter is working properly in device manager: control panel>hardware and sound, under devices and printers, choose 'device manager'. Expand the network adapters menu and find the wifi adapter. Right click on this and click properties. You can see if the device is working properly under the general tab.

Make sure that all driver are installed. Especially the wireless LAN driver. Go to control panel then click on system then click device manager. Look for the network adapter category. There should be no exclamation mark to any of the devices listed there. You can download all your computer drivers here. If everything are ok then all you need to do is to go to control panel. Click network connection. Look for icon named Wireless then click on it. Search your router and connect to it.
Is the "broadcast-tower" light on (the leftmost icon on the lite-bar below the screen)? Have you got an available/working WiFi router? Have you been able to choose a network to connect to? My T400 works fine when all the above are enabled..
check in device manager to see if its enabled and have drivers installed.some wifi are installed without a wireless manager and connect to first available(strongest)network.
go into control panel ,administrative tools,sevices and scroll down to wireless zero config and start.
then when you click on wireless icon you will have choices of connections(AP'S)(access points)
It's possible that the driver for your wireless adapter is already installed. Check under Device Manager > Network Adapters if there is anything pertaining to your wireless adapter. Make sure that your wireless adapter (under Device manager > Network adapters) does not have any red X or yellow question mark.
Red X indicated that it's disabled , while yellow question mark will suggest that you need to update the driver. If your wireless adapter is working properly under Device Manager > Network adapters then you will need to configure it's utility for wireless connection.
If you are running windows XP, look for the wireless icon in the lower right side of your task bar and use it to connect to your preferred network.
