Actually i don't know how to connect internet in both laptop and pc via that modem-router.
When i tried, I connected internet in laptop via wireless. But lan connected PC is not even connecting to internet.

So i used switch and tried. By connecting both laptop and PC via lan to that switch.
still laptop is connecting via lan, but PC is not connecting.

I checked to use obtain IP address automatically in laptop.
My laptop IPV4 address currently is 192.168.2.1
In PC,I changed Internet protocol properties-> Use the following ip address 192.168.2.3 and leave blank all.
What i am missing here.

If you take the switch out of the equation it will simplify things.

Using the router alone, reset to defaults, rebuild your ISP login details, rebuild your SSID and WiFi security, and examine whether the LAN ports are set to work, or actually work, or not. It is beginning to sound like there's something set wrongly in the router, or that there's a bug, or a physical fault.

Check TP Links website for any firmware upgrades too

Still, no success.

Situation is like this now.
1.Connected laptop to internet via wireless.
2.Turned on the connection sharing.
3.Connected PC via lan.
4.Changed the ipaddress of the lan connection. Now filesharing is working.
5.When i ping it is pinging.
No internet connection.

There must be something set wrongly in the router.

As long as you're sure the WiFi function works, but you cannot get a simultaneous LAN wired connection then check that you have actually got functional LAN ports on all four outlets.

Enable uPnP within the router whilst troubleshooting (not a default setting in all likelihood).

Check you have no MAC address whitelist.

Make sure you have the latest firmware.

If there's still a problem then I would presume the router is faulty.

Thanks for your assistance. I updated the firmware and replaced the splitter, now it is working fine.

Glad to hear it, although when you say "splitter" I'm unclear what you mean...
