Can't Connect Macbook to Wireless Network

Hey guys I need help...



I can't connect a MacBook to my wireless network. I am using WPA personal encryption and I am positive I am using the right passphrase. I can connect my iMac and my other MacBook to my network but not my second Macbook. It keeps telling me that "An error occurred..."



Any ideas? Do I need to reset something?



Try to configure under two different admin accounts no luck. Wired connections work fine.



Thanks



Dave

    Are you able to connect to other networks (coffeeshops to test)? It might be a problem with your airport card.

    you might also try sharing the connection from one of the other computers. Worth a shot.

    sometimes it gets confused and you have to tell it which type of security you are using. I think you just look under network options.

    I had to do that for my roommates mbp when we changed our network security.
