Do you have any other devices which are connecting to your WiFi network? Are they working at the same physical location you are trying to setup this computer?

Look at the settings of one of the working systems to see what you need to set on system that can't connect.

The wireless Bridge or wireless Router (called an Access Point {AP} for either) may also require a given type of 802.11 service (A, B, G or N) or a given band in the case of 802.11n (2.4 or 5.0GHz) for your systems to connect to it. Make sure your system can access the AP's service type settings.

Some older MacBook Pro's can't access 802.11n networks without a firmware upgrade, or access the 2.4 or 5.0GHz bands

How to tell if 802.11n-enabling software is installed:

If u have a wireless network that you might want to connect to,you reqire the SSID of the network from the network creator,otherwise your wireless wont work.

You can always check the wireless network strength.If it is too low then you wont be able to connect to the Internet.

All the above mentioned solutions are with respect to software alone.You might also want to check if there is any hardware fault with your wireless router or NIC.
