    if you mean typying in the passphrase i have done that

    no you have to goto manage wireless networks first and delete the connection. then reconnect and enter the passphrase

    yes i have tried that one

    try connecting it thru a lan cable ..so u wil be online and ..then check for the problem

    could try here.
    What ip address is your network adaptor showing? is it set up to get it's ip from dhcp or is it a static address?

    The problem is a DHCP clash where a device that cannot access the network has somehow been issued with the same IP address with another device. Just restart the router so that DHCP can restart and reallocate IP addresses.
