Here are a couple things to look at:
A.) Make sure your Mac's software is up-to-date. 1. Click the Apple menu in the upper-left corner of the screen. 2. Click "Software Update". 3. Click the install button (when it comes up).
B.) Are you using the latest OS? If you have a MacBook or MacBook Pro, you should be using Mac OS X 10.6 or at least 10.5. If you have an iBook or PowerBook (older Macs), you should be using at least 10.4.
C.) Also, have you changed the location of your laptop? Is it farther away from the wireless base station? Have you changed security settings on the device?
D.) Have you tried a different wireless router? Sometimes routers are quirky. I know that this one requires spending money. That's why it's at the end. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend.
Good luck! If this helps you solve your problem, please rate and recommend me. If not, please post again for more ideas.

unplug the modem and wait 30 seconds. Modems remember the MAC address of the last device connected to them. If it was connected to your laptop and working fine, then it has stored the MAC address of your laptop and will only communicate with the laptop. You need to connet the router and unplug the modem to clear the memory, then plug it back in so that it stores the MAC address of your router.

Can't get wireless to work on laptop


You may use the System restore utility on windows by going to all programs then Accessories... Open system Tools and then System Restore. You may resotre your system to an earlier time, time when you are still able to connect to your router wirelessly.

Connecting internet to wireless router


If you are trying to connect your wireless router to your ADSL modem then ( ADSL Modem -->Wireless Router-->Your Computer) dont enter any values in the ISP, DNS and MAC address fields. Let them be on default as :
Domain Name Server (DNS) Address Get Automatically From ISP

Router MAC Address Use Default Address This would then automatically pick up the settings from your modem.

You should remember to ad a WEP key to secure your wireless.

My 3 different mac laptops with airport can't connect to my wirless


Sounds like you might be accidentally connecting to a neighbour's network instead of your own. You need to go into your wireless settings on each laptop and tell them to connect to your own network.

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router


Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
