Wifi connection problem on new ThinkPad

On a new Lenovo ThinkPad T440S I installed Trinity from
exegnulinux_4.2.iso dated 24-Jul-2013.  This is in addition to a
preinstalled Windows 7 Professional.  Running wicd does not detect any
wireless networks, however, wicd in Trinity in my older laptop does
detect them.  And Windows in the ThinkPad also detects the networks,
so wireless must be enabled.  AND wicd doesn't even see a wired
network when connected with a LAN cable.

Do I need to configure wicd?
Or install from a newer image such as exegnu_wheezy_r14_26032014.iso?
Or install (L|X)Ubuntu and set up Trinity on top of that?
