    Two things to try:

    1) Network preference pane in System Preferences. Make sure you use DHCP since you're on a router. You can also try the Network Diagnostics in Safari when you can't connect. You can also try to click the Renew Lease button and see if that does anything.

    2) Something's funny with your router settings. For example, if I use WEP on my D-Link, I have to use a private shared key (PSK) instead of extendible authentication protocol (EAP). Check your router for details.

    Click the Blue Apple Logo to the top left and go to "System Preferences" then "Network" under the "Internet & Network" tab and click "Assist me..." the Assistant should help you set up your wireless connection.
