Re: Can Wireless be turned off?
Go to http://192.168.1.1 with your browser to access the router setup. You will be asked for a username and password. By default, the username is left blank and the password is "admin". You can then click on the "wireless" tab to access the wireless settings and turn off the router's wireless function. From the "network mode" dropdown list on the "basic wireless settings" tab, select "disable".
You can download the router manual here for full information:
On your searchbar, type 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1
When your router internals screen comes up, you need to set a WEP key password to protect it, it should be 13 characters long. After that your router is enabled securely, only you can access it, keep a note of your WEP somewhere safe, and the hex key thats generated. You will then need to type this in to wirelessly connect again.

Re: Can Wireless be turned off?
Go on the router settings menu(usually on the LAN URL: http://192.168.x.1/ where x is usually 1 or 0) look for a wireless or WLAN tab look for something like "enable wireless networking" and uncheck it/change the value to "no" save the settings, the router will reboot. do the opposite to enable it. this should not mess with your settings.

Make sure that the wireless button is not turned off. If there is a physical button, then you may want to push it into the opposite direction in order to get it working correctly. The other option is to click the "search the web and windwos" area of your task bar. Type in "wireless" then there should be an option that says " turn wireless device off" or "turn wireless device on". In your case, you will click the option that says "turn wireless device on". This should resolve your issue of not being able to switch between wired and wireless.
Try rebooting the laptop and the wired/wireless device. Remove power from both, remove all batteries, plug in the wired/wireless device wait for the self test to complete, plug in laptop reboot. That said is your wired/wireless adapter enabled? Turned on? etc.
