Your work may use what's called MAC filtering. Not MAC in the sense of your computer manufacturer, but MAC in the sense of your computer's MAC Address. Every network adapter has a unique MAC address, and your IT personnel may need to add your laptop's MAC address into their wireless security system.

Do you have another wireless device you can test on your company's network (like another laptop, an iPhone, iPod Touch, Kindle, etc)?

Did your office have MAC filtering enabled? Is that what was causing the issue?
