This is usually done through a Ethernet Cord. Usually cat5/5e/6 cable with an RJ-45 end. To connect the router and switch, use straight through cable.

we use straight cable to connect between the router and switch as router and switch are different devices.

Have each LAN run to a separate switch. Then connect each switch to an interface on the router.

There are at least two ways. First, you connect the wireless router directly to the cable modem, and then the switch in the wireless router. You have to connect the cable coming from the modem in the wireless router internet port. Second, you connect the wireless router to the switch, again the cable coming from the switch you have to connect on the wireless router internet port. It's better to put the wireless router just after the modem, but it's not required.
