Nonetheless, whenever I'm faced with a situation like that, I'm always
the first suspect... I take it that (more daft suggestions follow)

the mac air has wireless is turned on
the mac air can see wireless networks, just not connect
the air can connect via a wired connection
the air's wireless connection is set to use dhcp
the router is broadcasting ssid

if you open the network control panel, do you see a wireless signal
and there is just no ip address? or is there no wireless carrier?

but, as you have noticed, 10.10.0 is outdated (*never* load the first
release of anything), and you might be well served by using a wired
connection to update the operating system and then trying the wireless
connection again.
