I want to get the internet on my desktop and use the wireless capabilities on the router with the laptop. What does the connection look like?

You need to explain a bit more clearly - you mention 3g so are you using a wireless dongle of some sort? What sort of internet connection have you got to the router - is it cable or ADSL? All 'normal' network connections use RJ45 connectors, which look the same shape as, but are larger than, the RJ11 connector used for phones/modems.

Finally had to call Tech Support. They assisted me greatly. I had to get a connection with the Router first by configuing it to the comuter. Once that was done the 3G that was plugged into the router and the router plugged into the computer through the ethernet cable I was good to go. I have internet on the desktop and wirlessly on the laptop and ipod, using the 3G stick plugged into the router.

Thanks for your assistance.

Note for the un-initiated. Not all routers have the capability to connect a wireless USB modem dongle. Since the OP did not provide details of the router make/model he's using, we were unable to correctly answer his question.
