Default One Comp cant connect to Network


So i have a Dynalink Router all working fine, had this comp offline for about 3 weeks and then went to go and connect it to the router (with a SEAGEM wire less dongle) and now it wont connect. I thought it might be the dongle key so i tried connecting through an Ethernet cable but that brought me no success either.

I am able to see the network through Windows it just wont connect to it, i have the WAP key right so its not that and 2 other computers are connecting through Wireless so it cant be the Router.

Any thoughts / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

First, I'd delete the old wireless profile and re-create it.

Then I'd check to make sure that the connections are set to DHCP (if that is what you are using on your network) and don't have static IP's set.

Then I'd check to make sure you didn't do any MAC filtering on the router.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
