Could it be that your PC is not configured with the appropriate key? Or perhaps the Access Point is configured to accept only some MAC Address?

Other things to check is the Access Point configuration. Is the DHCP, DNS, Gateway correct? Are yo able to connect other computers or PDAs to thsi Access Point?

can you access the internet through your AP if you plug in via ethernet? this would tell you whether its your WiFi setup or something deeper in your LAN
