It would be much easier to use a simpler device, namely any Netgear 10/100 wireless router.
Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> Router's WAN port
Router's LAN port #1 --> your desktop computer
Router's LAN port #2 --> your Sony player
Router's wireless adapter --> your iPod Touch's WiFi adapter
Since the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) is only delivering 5 to 25 Mbits/second to your router,
unless you are paying a _lot_ of money per month to your ISP,
there's no need to buy/use expensive "gigabit" equipment.
The HN9000 should have an ethernet port. You will require two ethernet cables to connect the desktop to the router.
1. Connect the ethernet cable from the Modem to the Ethernet Input port on the Router (It is generally placed away from the other ports on the back of the router.)
2. Connect another ethernet cord from one of the output ports on the router to the desktop computer.
3. On the laptop, turn on your wireless card. The process for this differs from computer to computer. If you were to provide the model of laptop, I could provide you specific instructions.
4. The network setup should be complete.

You can always try a reset of the router (unplug the router for 15 seconds, and give it a moment to reboot. If that doesn't fix the problem, you might want to restart the computer afterwards as well (following the reboot of the router.
If neither of these work, you might have to call your internet provider and they can clear up any issues they might be having.
It should be located on the top right hand side, on the SIDE of the computer. It looks just like a phone jack hook up. Hope this helps. Also, if you don't have one or can't find it you can always plug in an adapter to the telephone line and then you can plug the ethernet cord into that.
