After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …
First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.
To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!
The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)

Go to run type in cmd a dos prompt will appear.
type in ipconfig /all and check your ip address. Chances are your ip address is 169.x.x.x which is an internal ipaddress. You will need to manually assign an ip address To do this go to my network click on view connections right mouse click the lan icon then go to the tcp/ip config and manually assign your ip address.
It needs to be the same subnet as your router so use 192.168.1.xx anything but 1 then you should be fine.

reset your Router via pin whole at its back then set the config of TCP/4 and obtain Ip automaticaly and obtain DNS automaticaly... later set your settings according by 192.168.1.2 without changing IP and then turn off you router ... turn it on after 5 to 10 min .. thank you
