should the wireless router be uninstalled from the desktop pc if no longer required ?.

If you are not using at all, then maybe it's a good idea. What was it used for, what's plugged it into it?

If you want to share files and printers (providing the computer that these are used on is switched on) then no. You can use this facillity(sp) wirelessly.
