|I always connected my ipod via the cable to the pc but then mine is a few years old. Sounds like your ipod is really a itouch in that it wants to connect wirelessly.|
It would not be asking for your routers password but the wireless encryption passphrase so it can connect to the network via wireless.
Is your router a wireless one and did you ever setup the wireless side of it?
If you didn't set it up who did?
Normally you don't use your windows account and password to enter the router. You enter admin and the password you set for the router.
You would never leave the password at defaults or someone could change your router so you can't get into it.
Once you are in you would go to the wireless section, set your SSID and choose the encryption level [WPA2] and set a passphrase like the first line of a poem or something you would remember.
You save the config
Now you set the itouch networking to the same values you set for the wireless which are usually dhcp, wpa2, ssid.
