    Try using WPA encryption if you can. I've had issues on and off using WEP networks, but WPA/WPA2 has been flawless.

    Disable the security on your router and try connecting. If it holds a connection without security then all you have to do is tweak the security settings. If it still doesn't connect, try resetting the router back to factory specs. (Which router is it?) And then do a firmware upgrade if available.

    To rule out problems with your Mac, try connecting to another network.
