Asking multiple (related) questions in the same thread is fine.

And no, you just need a wireless modem/router which your ISP will provide you.

then all your devices connect by wifi. your devices will search for your modem which you may have named, then you use your password to connect. you can hook up your lappy, desktop and tv by cable to the modem direct for faster speeds.

The desktop computer is just for configuring a web browser in the router.

You will get a faster download speed via a lan cable from modem to deskto.

A web browser on the desktop is used for configuring the web page based setup, served from the router.
