I've been levelling my monk and found pretty nice rares for my other character. I stashed it, and once I was the right level to equip the item, I was quite pissed because it wouldn't let me equip it. Has anyone had this type of problem, and is their a way to fix it?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
The only possible answer is that you are trying to equip gear that is unusable by a wizard.
There are two types of gear, class specific, which allows only one type to equip it, and not class specific. Although the non class specific gear is not limited to only one class, not all classes can use all gear types.
The class specific gear is:
From the non-class specific gear all classes can use all armors and jewelry (head, torso, legs, wrists, hands, shoulders, feet, shields, rings and necklaces.)
Other than this, each class has certain weapons it can't use:
There are also trinkets for followers, that can only be used by a specific follower.
All this can be seen in the official site.
