"I have also 1 network wire i can connect either the pc or the lap"

It might help if you told us what the other end of that cable connects to.
Is it a modem? Is it a router?

get another cable to connect the laptop to the same switch.

Your post doesn't make much sense. You don't have a network with one pc connected to a switch.

Are you really talking about internet access and you have a switch connected to the modem?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
