    So i have already connected the router with a cross-over cable .

    When you connect anything components via a RJ-45 on a router, a straight through cable is what it requires. Cross over cables are hardly used. You might use a cross-over cable if you were connecting to PC's together and had no router or switch and were going point to point.

I have a local internet connection without any modem(by ethernet cable)..i want to connect Netgear WGR614v9 router...can u help me out

You do not want to connect as a router, there is one upstream from you. You want a switch. This is similar to a splitter. Just hook your plug from the wall to it, and then plug each unit in.

If you need Wireless, you would not plug the network cable from the wall into the normal Wan or internet port, but as if it were another computer. Set your wireless security and limit free access.

Sometimes you have to "dumb down" a router to not autiomatically assign addresses, but I doubt it in your case.

I believe the checkmark light is to say that the internet connection has been successful. Are the laptops connecting to the router but not the internet?
Connect a PC/laptop to the router via ethernet cable and goto the routers homepage (usually or then double check that your ISP settings have been entered correctly. This should get you online, if the problems persist contact your ISP to clarify your broadband settings, user logon, and that their service is up and running.
Hope this helps,
