Double-check settings

I have had that happen when I had an incorrect password. That's the first thing to check - SSID, Authentication method, and "shared secret" or password.

Second, Drivers are often a source of connectivity problems. Make sure your wireless drivers are the most recent available for your wireless card, and preferably from the manufacturer rather than using the generic driver bundled in Windows.

Thirdly, does the network have an access list? Is your machine on the list of authorized users? Sometimes the AP or Router will allow the machine to connect, but blocks routing access.
