Macbook Pro can't find my Router

Bought a Macbook Pro today, and it can't find my router. It can find and connect to other routers in my area, but doesn't find the one I have at home. It does work if I connect it with an Ethernet cable though. I tried adding it manually, didn't work. I have the SMC8014WN, and it works wirelessly with my Blackberry, my sisters Blackberry, and our other laptop, but the Macbook Pro can't even find it.

Any help is appreciated, and Merry Christmas!

Do you have MAC Address filtering turned on for the router? If you do, it will not allow connections from computers with an unknown MAC Address. Another possibility is that yu have SSID broadcasting turned off, in which case the Mac won't find it automatically.
