    Do you have anything else connected to the router? If so is it connecting? If you open Manage Wireless Networks in Networking and Sharing does it show the network there? If it's present and you right-click it and click "Status", then the "Support" tab then "Details" does it list an IP address? If you right-click the connection and click "Properties" then double-click "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" is the bubble next to "Obtain and IP address automatically checked"? Can you log into the router? If not something may have happened to it (lightning strike, power surge, etc).
