Laptop Op system?

Connect the laptop to the modem with an ethernet cable and run the disk that came with the modem.

Make sure you set wireless security to at least WPA (PSK2 if the modem supports it)WPA

Run the disk that comes with the printer to set up wireless connection to the laptop

Connecting to the TV is usually done via cable it depends if the TV is wireless capable.
