It will work immeidately with those peripherals immeidately if you do not want any security on your network. I would recommend having some type of security, but that is specific to the capability of your current configuration.

simple. first you must set the router up with an SSID and also a WPA2 password. once that is done, you simply turn the ipod on (and after setting it up with itunes on your computer) go into settings, you will see wifi and a switch set to "OFF", slide that to "ON" and when you see your SSID from your router, click on it, it will then ask for your WPA2 password. Enter the password and your all set.

It should be easy (at least it was for the 3G ipod touch.) Leave all the default settings as is, and once you set it up with your network name and password (which you choose, so make it one that is hard to guess), then on the ipod touch go to settings..wifi...on...and click on your network's name. Then you will need to enter the password. From then on, you will not need to enter the password on the ipod. That's the easy version. You can also, for increased security for your network, make it so the network can only be used by specific devices, but that's a bit more complicated. (If you're interested, it involves using the access control card.)
But getting it set up with the ipod is a piece of cake. Like I said, my ipod touch is 3G, so there may be some slight variations with the 4G.

It does broadcast wireless G so it should be compatible with your ethernet card, or wireless card.

But if you're seriously still running ME, you should at least upgrade to Windows XP, or Winows 7.

not sure if you got an answer to this but here goes: it should work wired to your pc. you must make sure your LAN adapter settings are set to allow the router dynamic IP capibility (default is set up correctly) Next is wireless, now that's a bit more tricky. Wirelss internet will work with your adapter, not the OS, so as long as you have a more recent wireles adapter you should be fine, I would not plan on using WEP encryption. it may cause problems with connectivity.

Question

Will this work for Netflix streaming ?

I have mid level DSL. Streams fine on my computer. I want it on my TV. Will be buying a roku at the same time.

Never had a router before.

I can buy a refurb for about half price so I was thinking of going that route.

Will this router & roku be all I need to watch NF streaming ?
Thanks !

You can push the reset button on the netgear router, which will put it back to factory settings. The default user will be admin, and password will be password. The you can reset the system. If you did not change your user name and password when you first installed the router, you might try that username and password first. The go into the setting and change what you need to.

Honestly, I never set mine up correctly and never set up a password, though I do have it on a secure network. If you are using Windows (which I assume you are) try this: Go to your computer that already has access to the network, go to the Control Panel (from the Start Menu), go to Network & Sharing Center, go to Manage Wireless Networks, double-click on your network name, then click on the security tab and there should be a check-box that says Show characters. This will give you the security key. Next, go to your guest computer, find your network and connect with the key. Once they are connected, you can manually control their access if you want. Hope it works for you.

It could help, but try connecting a cat5 cable between the blueray and the netgear, if that is an option for you. That is how I streamed with my blueray and 1.5Mbps DSL. The other thing to check is your blueray.
