What kind of router is it?

Is your router in 5ghz mode? If so, the iPod touch you have won't connect to it. Make sure your 2.4ghz band and 5ghz band have separate names so you can be sure your iPod is trying to connect to the correct one. Some routers will operate in both frequencies at the same time and have the same network name, which can cause this problem with iPods and iPhones that only connect to 2.4ghz.

Does your internet modem have its own router in it?
