    just change your laptop wifi adapter settings to "shared" instead of "open"...

    I have least idea about how to set router/modem etc
    if there is way by which I can connect multiple devices to wifi.
    AR800V v3.0 type2
    (A)
    Try to back up present modem/router settings to say C:/My Documents/ router on LAN
    ( see under Management Back up menu item)
    (B)
    Now you can access the router menu settings and in WAN page
    (a) disable "Bridged" if selected and
    (b) enable ppp/PPPoE mode box.
    (c) follow instructions.
    (d) in LAn page select DHCP box and enable it.
    give a range say 192.168.1.3 to 192.168.10
    (e) if UpNp box is seen enable it also.
    (f) SAVE and reboot from Management option. wait for one or two minutes.
    (C)
    Check link "Teracom" given below for step by step instructions etc or
    here (except No 12)
    http://www.calcutta.bsnl.co.in/dataoneinstall/mu12.html
    (D)
    in network settings for both LAN and WLAN in tcp/ip
    properties select obtain ip address automatically.

    Feedback.

    Without WLAN network settings in laptop, just by changing
    to "shared" in wireless network card
    you could access in wifi mode both laptop and iPod.
    Please mention OS used.

    IF IT WORKS DON'T REPAIR
    However try to back up present settings in modem /wifi router to say C:/My Documents/AR800V working fine !
    If not sure make Screenshots of ALL the router's settings pages.
