-Do you use encryption? if yes turn it of on the router (accesponint) and try again. Then we are sure it's not the password problem.

- Do you use latest drivers on your wireless network card?

Hi j4eva,
Just to add to Rico750's suggestions,
Did you setup the SSID on the routers web site??
Are you using the wireless cards utility or the Windows utility to manage your connection ??
