    I cant figure out whats wrong its either my netgear (WGR614v9) my computer (Windows 98) or the ipod touch. Heres what happens i go to the wifi setting touch username put the password in and after about 5-8 seconds it says unable to connect.

    Try (temporarily) turning off encryption on the WGR614 and see if you can connect. I would suspect that the settings for encryption may have to be adjusted. Are you using WEP or WPA?

    Sometimes when I am setting up a new device and have issues, I set the wireless router to the dumbest settings (all security off) and flip them on one by one to see if it takes.

    You can't turn off security settings because it doesn't give signal?
    This sounds like a router issue to me. I have never seen a router/access point that can't do unsecured wireless.

    And I have the WGR614 (v4). It operates fine without security settings.

    Now, I don't want to suggest that you operate it without security on a permanent basis, but use it to diagnose where the incompatibility is as SilentPanda suggested. Resetting it to it's defaults, turning off security is just step one.

    GL!
