Hi, I recently bought a Smart TV and would like to use my laptop in conjunction with the TV.  I use Comcast and all of my computers operate as a network with the Router using wifi.  Is there a way to include the TV as a wifi divise to the network or how does this work?  What I want to do is watch some video clips that I have on my computer on the TV without using any wires.
Thanks

If the TV has a wireless network card the first thing to do is go into the network settings on the TV and setting it up

However streaming video from the laptop to the TV is not just as simple as connecting the TV to the network.
Have a look on this link for an explanation

Personally I went for the media player option

There are so many devises shown here that I don't know which one you are specifically refering to.  Could you please be more specific.  Also, will the device allow me to CONTROL my computer on the TV screen?  Say that I wanted to play something in iTunes, could I control my computer wireless less and open up iTunes and/or any application I wanted to without physically running a cable from the computer to the TV?

You said you bought a SMART TV.  Generally that definition of a television (ie, "SMART") means it has built-in apps... one of which is generally able to access photos and video files on a computer connected to your network.  This sometimes requires downloading a companion app to the computer you have the files on so that it can talk to the built-in app on the TV.

What is the make/model of your TV?
