Did you try unplugging/resetting your router, cable modem, etc?

I had a similar problem last week (after months of trouble free access).
No connection, yet airport thought it was connected. So I tried plugging directly into the router. Still nothing. Plugged into the cable modem bypassing the router. Nothing. Resetting the cable modem by unplugging for 30 seconds did the trick.

I had the benefit of having another wireless PC on the network, which also lost internet access, so i knew it wasn't just the MacBook having an issue.

I've already done that, plus we have a bunch of computers around our house and none of the others have this problem. Thanks for the reply though.
