I use my T530 laptop connected to a docking station. My wired internet connection works this way. However, when i disconnect my laptop from the docking station i can't see any wireless networks. 


My wireless radio switch is on, and when I go to Network connections manage adapter settings 'Wireless Network Connection' is enable just not connected. It doesn't let me connect to it.


Inter ® Centrino ® Ultimate-N 6300 AGN is my adapter.

It is possible that your wi-fi unit has died. The simplest and cheapest way to check this is to beg borrow or steal a USB wi-fi dongle (and its drivers if necessary) and plug that in and see if you have wireless connectivity. Even if you have to buy a dongle, they are not that expensive.


Another possibility is that the Intel unit has become unconnected. If you look at the Intel web-site, you will see that it is a plug-in module, secured by two screws in the corners opposite the connector. If the screws worked loose it is just possible this would cause a faulty connection.
