Can't Connect to Wireless Airport Network

My roommate has a PC and a wireless router. I can normally connect to it automatically, but every once in a while after I restart my MacBook the connection won't start back up. I know the network name and password, but cannot connect to it. What should I do to connect to it? It's a WPA personal password.

Thanks

It isn't an Apple router. So it must be a third party router? A Linksys.

What is changing the channel and the encryption? Sorry for my ignorance.

What is so weird, is that last night I had to use a ethernet cable because the wireless connection wasn't working, and this morning the network is fine. It will go haywire soon like it always does.

Thanks
