Wireless connection between laptop and LCD TV.

I currently own a HP Pavilion dv9000 Laptop as well as a Sony Bravia 40" LCD TV.  I know how to connect my laptop to my TV so that whats displaying on my Laptop shows up on the TV but this requires a wired connection.

My question is whether or not anyone knows of a way to do this in a wireless fashion.  To give you a little bit of an insight as to why I would want to do this I am considering using my Laptop as a "TV Unit" to watch TV shows on my LCD TV.  I will connect a wireless keyboard and mouse to the Laptop so as to literally watch TV on the web.  However I do not want to manually connect a couple of cords to my laptop each and every time I want to do this.

Anyone have any ideas?

You would need to purchase a wireless AV unit. It is basically just a wireless Access point that you connect to the TV.

I have this device at home.. Works fine.....

Buy a wireless bridge from any of the soho guys (D-Link, Netgear, etc.). These are also sometimes called "Gaming Bridges". Pre-configure it on your laptop/desktop to connect to your AP, then hook it up to your TV's LAN port. This will put the TV on your wireless network and you can then connect to it no differently than you did when it was connected via the LAN cable..
