I have exactly the same problem!

New Mac book pro 2.33 out the box and it can detect my network but not joint it - I get the "There was an error connecting to the network xxx" message.
My network is run using a belking wireless router. It has 3 wired computers attached which work fine, and 2 other wireless laptops connect to it sometimes (they are both PCs).
For some reason though this apple can not connect wirelessly, although it works fine if connected by a cable.

I have been on the phone to apple's technical support for 50 minutes trying all sorts of things including enabling and disabling security on the router - trying the $ thing - restarting - updating software - changing other settings - starting the computer up in a weird mode (holding ctrl-apple-p-r) - but nothing seems to work!

I was then told to phone belkin, but they don't know what the problem is either -all the settings on the router are such that it should be working fine.

If anyone has any other ideas please do let me know! (I won't be able to try them though until Sunday as I am currently away).
