Do you have other wireless machines that work properly ? If not, check if wireless property of your modem is at off position.

Also check your device whether there is a switch on it that turns on or off the wireless capability of your device.

Did you check your modem if MAC filtering is on for wireless LAN adapters ?

Get into your modem by typing the modem's IP address and go to the wireless section and turn off MAC filtering or better enter your wireless adapter MAC address in there.

Another thing might be that your modem's security setting do not match the capability of your wireless LAN adapter, i.e. WEP, WPA, WPA2, AES, PSK, etc.

Another thing, though a remote possibility, might be that you are trying to connect to another wireless modem in your vicinity that has the same SSID as your wireless modem. In this case your passphrase does not match.

Hope the above helps.
