Can't connect to wireless internet...?

Specs: Windows 7
My laptop can't connect to the wireless internet at my workplace, but I can connect to the wireless internet at my house.
I'm very sure that the wireless internet at my workplace works because all of my co-workers can connect their iPad, smartphones, laptops...etc to the internet.
I just can't get my laptop connected. I entered the right password, and then the connecting status keeps changing back and forth between "Connected" and "Limited access". It also shows "Identifying... no network access" all the time.
I really don't know what happened to my laptop's setting. I have tried to remove the wireless network from "Managing Wireless Network" and set it back up again, but it doesn't help at all. Can someone please help me?

The router at your workplace may be using a wireless encryption standard that your laptop's wireless adapter is not compatible with. There are broadly speaking three standards of encryption on wireless routers:

WEP (all wireless adapters are compatible with this).
WPA (most wireless adapters are compatible with this).
WPA2 (only a few wireless adapters are compatible with this).
