Not absolutely the fastest but perhaps the easiest to follow:
Take the airport bus No 12 to Diamant metro station; at Diamant take underground tram 7 or 25 to Montgomery metro (subway) station (2 stops); at Montgomery take metro line 1 to Roodebeek (4 stops); at Roodebeek take bus 45 which passes within 3 minutes walk of avenue Ariane.
Brussels public transport online journey planner suggests a slightly faster route involving changes at bus stops - but it is perhaps easier to see where you are when you are travelling along the metro (subway) system.
Cost is €3 if you buy a ticket from the machine at the bus stop at the airport; €5 if you buy it from the bus driver. You can use the same ticket for the whole journey.
If you can say when you are coming I can look up the journey for you in exact detail.
< Is there anything like day pass? If so, how much does it cost? >
Yes. €4.50 - but it is not valid to and from the airport http://www.stib.be/1-jour-dag.html?l=en . There is also a 3-day pass for €9.50.
<If you can say when you are coming I can look up the journey for you in exact detail.>
I will start the journey from airport at 10:00 AM and will return back to airport at 16:15 PM.

Now that I see exactly where it is, I have found a much simpler way of doing this.
At the Airport - go to bus platform A. Take De Lijn bus 659 to its terminus at Roodebeek metro station. Buses leave every 20 minutes at 10.10, 10.30, 10.50 etc. and the journey takes 14 minutes. Ticket costs €2 if bought from the bus driver.

Buses leave every 15 minutes at 03, 18, 33 and 48 minutes past each hour and the journey takes 4 minutes. Ticket again costs €2 if bought from the bus driver.
Total cost = €4 but this is much quicker and simpler than my first suggestion.
For the return journey to the Airport:
Take bus 45 from Tractebel to Roodebeek metro stib.be/irj/…EN_HP_45_3464_20110901_Col.pdf - bus every 6 minutes after 16.00
At Roodebeek take bus 659 to the airport …delijn.be/dienstregelingen/…3659271210.pdf - Woluwe Roodebeek to Zaventem Luchthaven - bus every 15 minutes at 02, 17, 32 and 47 minutes past the hour.
