Windows XP SP3 Wireless Internet Connection Problem

I'm having a problem with a Windows XP SP3 Dell Latitude. I can't connect to my building's wireless internet. I could do it yesterday, but not today. The other three computers I have can all do it, but this one cannot.

I have tried ipconfig /release but keep getting the message that the media is disconnected. I've uninstalled the wireless device and automatically came back up on reboot. I've rebooting probably a dozen times to no avail.

It looks like my computer can "see" the network, but when I try to connect all it does is get to the "waiting for the network..." window and never connects.

make sure that building's wireless router mode is on 11bgn mood and 1,6, or 11 channel because your laptop is old technology it doesn't support 11n mood and 13 channel.
