    I'm not sure any will be able to help me with this but here goes:

    For the past week out of no where my Mac has stopped connecting to my houses WiFi. It detects the connection, but just won't connect when I try to. There are occasions it will work for short periods, but then just disconnects from it again.

    I've tried resetting modem and nothing changes, downloaded recent updates and nothing, sat right next to modem and problem still occurs. Worth mentioning that I have no problem connecting to this WiFi on iPhone or iPad. Just happens with the Macbook. There is another wireless connection available in my area (BT Wifi with FON) and I can connect to this no problems using the Mac.

    Anyone have any idea on what might be causing the problems with connecting to that specific network? I'm not too hopeful, but thanks to any one who replies!

    Just in case anyone cares (for future reference) I managed to fix this problem!

    Renewing the DHCP lease fixed it.
