Did you try removing the connection on the Mac from System Preferences => Network and then readding it?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I don't think it's the router, based on the fact that you say other machines connected (are they wireless?).

What happens when you connect the MBP via an Ethernet cable to the router?

When you're connected via wireless, open up Network Utility (Applications => Utilities). With the Info tab selected (default), change the Network Interface to en1. What is the IP address that it shows?

Open Terminal.app and try to ping 192.168.1.1 and tell me what happens.

Ok, so we've proved that we can talk to the router, but the router apparently is not providing DNS resolution. You didn't happen to have set up a manual DNS server setting at one point in time, did you?

Also, try pinging www.yahoo.com

Also, did you personally configure WPA? If not, is it possible that whomever did might have configured MAC filtering?
