Check to see if there are any blocks on your routers applied. It could be that they have been configured to allow certain devices to connect to them.

I had the YOGA Book Andriod version.  From what I have read, some of the yoga books have had this as a common issue or at least for me it was until I got to the 2nd to last update via OTA.  Everything was working just fine then it lost its connection and never came back.  I validated that my routers modems were working fine (and they were).  Try doing a hard reset to if that may help.  Personally, I did a bit everything (hard resets, restarts, everything) even contacting Lenovo support but that was useless too since they don't support this version of the yogabook anymore.  Since I was still with in the 15 day return period, I brought it back to walmart.  Lenovo is horrible about their support on this product line specifically, I have several thinkpads that I've never had issues with.  Maybe this was just to hard for them to figure out and they just gave up on it.  It had so much potential.

Another item, the U.S. vs Europe thing shouldn't matter.   All WIFI work basically the same way.

When I changed wifi channel to 5 on my router, yoga starts to see it and no problem to connect. 

 

I can't figure out how to do the same on phone. 

 

I confirm, Lenovo support is terrible :(

There shouldn't be any problems, nor this is a common issue. It should work unless you bought a used one configured allready for use at certain networks.

Make a hard/factory reset and try again (btw, is it rooted?).

Because you have bought the Yoga in the US, it comply to the US regulations. Therefore, it will only scan for eleven channels through the 2.4GHz frequency. The EU wireless standard allows use of thirteen wireless channels. Just change your channel on the router to the first eleven, the Yoga will see it.
