Even if the SSID is being broadcast try adding it manually with the correct encryption type. This is especially critical if you're using WPA Enterprise (w/ external RADIUS Auth). Even for PSK adding the SSID (wireless profile) manually and selecting the encryption type usually does the trick. If you're wireless network is Cisco gear as well then it should be quite easy to debug your client's mac address to see where it's falling down.

Your time and date are likely not correct in System Preferences, so check that first that it's updated via Apple's time servers for your location.
I think you also need to head to System Preferences > Network and create a New Location (Unlock, then Edit Locations), then delete the old one, head to Airport > Avdanced > Ariport and delete all the wireless connections. Because fooing around you likely messed other things up.
Check this link out for more fixes.
Then simply start over new via the Airport connection in the top right corner and when it askes to save in KeyChain, do so.
I don't like Cisco/Linksys routers, they spy on your web traffic via their Cloud Connect.
Going to sell their home router division to Belkin I read.
For the best router IMHO, I advise the top end Netgear dual band, it's already plug and play with decent passwords provided, also you can increase the security and turn off PING.
Apple's routers require setup and you can't turn off PING so you can be Ping flooded by bothnets or it announces itself to hackers online, and if you don't set a awesome password, your fish food. Apple needs to improve their router software IMHO.

I think there might be a Java connection... I was tryig to install it last night... on and off; I didn't know about the change and thought, "Huh, I don't have Java, therefore, I must need it!"

Thanks, rearview... but I'm not network savvy and don't have a clue as to what the abbreviations stand for. What seems to be a very intelligent answer is virtually all Greek to me.

I may have confused the issue by making it sound like a WiFi problem. I have the same issue with an ethernet cable attached.
My iMac is working without any problems... that's why I suspect Java (not that I have a friggin clue). The issue began when I was doing everything I could to get around the proclamations about not needing Java. Should I uninstall Java VisualVM (I use Photoshop CS6) Again, I appreciate your knowledge and help,
