If its one of those SBC ones, make sure that you got the password right. I assume your reading the number off the bottom of the router. I thought for weeks that my computer just wouldn't connect but it happens that on those 2wire stickers the numbers kinda ran together or the letters looked like #'s or the #'s looked like letters.

Try hardwire connecting it and logging into the router through your browser and resetting the wpa password.
