    It sounds like the iMac is not getting an IP Address. If you look in Network and Airport what IP Address is showing?

    Are you sure you are entering the WPA Key correctly? What WiFi Router are you using?

    My MBP did this exact same thing when we got a new Linksys router. I went into the router settings through the IP address. I noticed the channel was set to "Auto" configuration so I switched it to Manual and put it on channel 6. After doing this the Mac was able to get the Internet just fine.

    I asked what the IP was? Can you post what is showing under IP Address where I told you to look?

    is it 169.x.x.x?? 192.168.0.x?
