I had this the other day after flashing a new rom. Go to manage applications (however you get to it on your rom), view "all", and look for "Google Service Framework", click it, and hit "clear data", reboot phone. Worked for me.

Happens to me all the time. I just turn off my wifi and turn it back on. Should work. Make sure the market is closed. You can also use the tip above, but eventually you might run into this problem again.

I sometimes run into this when switching from 3G to WIFI when getting ready to download apps. the Play app seems to be especially picky about it's connection- instead of putting in a good-faith effort to connect, if there is any kind of interruption, it will just bail. I also have noticed that on CM7 ROMS, it seems to take a little longer for wifi to connect fully (with internet access) than with Froyo/stock ROMs.
Thanks a million awesome friend! This fixed the problem for me - I thought it was related to having installed and removed AVG, but it seems not, following the steps above exactly, including the reboot fixed the problem. I'm so glad, I thought my phone was bricked!
