    Disable encryption on the router and try to connect that way. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

    I would but the router isa business based wifi signal and they give you the code. Im parked at a campsite with wifi. My cousins laptop picks up the signal and connects using the same pass key but I can't. She has a mac.

    Delete the wireless profile, and then try again. That often works as well as the "dance" previously suggested.
