Mac Can't Connect to Airport Network. Windows Can.

It's at it again. Once again this morning my Mac didn't connect yo my Airport Express. It is giving me "connection timeout" errors every time I try to connect. Meanwhile, my Windows XP machine is humming along, connecting to the network with no effort. I'm running a MacBook Air (2.0) with OS X 10.6.1.
I tried deleting my network password from the keychain. Airport Utility refuses to see any wireless devices unless I completely reset the Airport Express. The only thing I can think of is that both Sunday and yesterday I was using Windows in virtualization. Yesterday it was Windows 7 in Parallels 5. Sunday it was Windows 7 in Fusion 3. However, I'm using the basic configuration of each where Fusion and Parallels are simply sharing the Mac's network connection with Windows.
Any ideas? Obviously it's something with my Mac since my Windows PC can find the network. It doesn't appear to be a hardware issue since Windows 7 in Boot Camp also detects the network without a problem. In addition to resetting the keychain I've restarted a few times now. Oddly enough, after restarting in Windows, and restarting in OS X, it seems to work again.
