Haha, I also have Comcast high speed internet. You'll love it. Super duper fast. You'll be able to download movies in less than 2 hours and songs in less than 30 seconds (depending on how long they are). I've had a 5 minute song download in what seems like 30-45 seconds. Incredible.
I've got the exact same setup as you, what a coincidence. Wireless laptop and my desktop PC are all connected through my Linksys wireless router. I wouldn't put the router on the TV. Too much interference can disrupt signal. Set it on a shelf of you have one. My desktop is not wireless. It's directly connected to one of the ports by means of CAT 5e ethernet cable to the back of my NIC.
Looks like you have a general idea on how to do it. Yeah, set the security after you're done. Enable file and print sharing too. Then, you'll have the ultimate home network!!!
