If it does (and it may vary by market) a UK review shows wireless 802.11b for that model -- which is usable so long as you have a wireless router which supports mixed mode or b.

Check Windows, Control Panel, Hardware, Device Manager to see if the Thinkpad's wireless card is present and has a driver installed. You may also be able to find it under a hatch in the base of the computer using a mini-PCI socket. Though that may be a modem -- you can usually tell modems as they have logos of various national phone authorities permitting their use with local phone systems.
