If the router is turned ON then automatically your laptop wireless card will detect it and connect to the router.

To say in otherwords, now your notebook and Router are simple network.

You need to contact your router support to configure the router to get Internet. After automatically your notebook gets the Internet from the Router.

The above message is just by what I understood from your message.

If the issue is different, and if the router is already configured to Internet and if there are other systems connected to the router and able to access Internet, then replay back, so that I can explain accordingly

I have a wireless router (WNDR3400) connected to a switch (about 10 computer connected to switch), and the switch is connected to the modem. For the network, all the wired computers can see and share...

Make sure all the computers wired and wireless are in the same workgroup.
To share files across all the computers and laptops on your network then -
All the computer and laptop in this network group must have their hard drive or folder/s set to SHARED (a hand symbol will be placed on these folders that are shared).
If there isn't a secutity problem then these folders and easy of file sharing then do not setup users and passwords on these folders.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.
