I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to my wifi network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing my router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop but that was a small price.
You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.
Even if the modem/router you are trying to connect to allow 'dynamic IP' address resolution (eg. no need for coonecting device to know IP address, subnet, etc...), you will still need to know the specific 'password'/ 'Security Key'/Encryption Key for your specific modem/router Wifi coonection - I am assume that you also know the correct SSID (Broadcast system ID for Wifi) for this Wifi Connection. Hope it clarifies a few requirements.
So what is the IP Address that the iPod Touch gets? Does it match with what range the BT gives out?
Does anything else connect through that router successfully?
You might try changing the WEP, WPA, WPA2 that you are using ... see if that helps the iPod touch to connect. I've seen where certain computers, etc. do not like WPA or WPA2 or certain passwords or key codes.
netgear support software could be bad. The ipod might not be able to read signal. umm try restoring the ipod. then plug it to your computer let it recognize it and then before you add ANYTHING to it, go straight to the setting and put in the router number and everythign and see if it works. I know people hate it but restoring it usually works. Its just simple small virus's that hit your ipod through songs and stuff and it eventually makes everything stop working. So get back at me let me know if restoring it worked.
ok do this if it is already showing your router up on your portable device but it has that security lock and you are unable to join or need a password which u dont know lol go to that network and on the top push forget this network. than go back and click on for other location. than for the name put in your router name usually 5 characters long make sure u use capitalization cuz its case sensitive. than select what kind of key u have it should say right on the side of your wireless router. than type the key in usually a wep key and u should be set to join it if it doesnt auto matically do soo
