Which firmware are you running? If your still on the 2.x firmwares, i had a similar problem. Reset your router and then through your pc/mac, go into your router settings and make sure your encription is not WEP. Change it, or make sure it is WEP2 or higher. That should fix it!

I've seen this on wired networks too. What happens is your device sends an old address to your router, which denied it. You have to refresh/repair the connection to fix it.
