A little bit more information will be helpful,

Is this your private owned wireless network?

Is a password or WEP key required?

If it is not yours do you have permission to access it?

What type of router is it, brand name, model?

And are you getting connected at all, like limited connectivity... or are just not connecting?

Answer these and I may be able to help you.

Ok, well we seem to have a connection which is good, this tends to happen if the WEP key is wrong, keep in mind when you type your "passcode" in, it will assign a specific key to that, so you may want to double check that.

If everything is fine and you still have problems than you may need to directly connect to the router and go into the router setup page, and make sure your passwords are correct and that you dont have MAC address filtering enabled or anything like that, if you do you can add your MAC from your laptop in, but it is easier to make sure everything is working fine first. If everything seems fine but nothing is changing reset the router, push the little reset button with a pen and hold it for about 15-20 seconds. That should put you back to factory default, than set it up again, to allow wireless connectivity, and try again. If it STILL doesnt work, than it may be with the laptop. You said that you tried a repair, which is basically a release and renew. So if you still have problems than we can push into it further but for now lets do all that above stuff and see what happens.

You don't say if it's a new addition to the network or a problem related to a dropout after making a connection. If it's a new connection have you checked that both machines are in the same workgroup? This often indicates low or no connectivity and it can't renew the IP because, as far as I know, the router can't make the connection to the new machine until it is in the same workgroup as it can't 'see' it.
