How to set up the wireless internet connect on my laptop to this new SBG901 modem?

Short answer: YOU DO NOT.

The cable-modem just converts from the cable-company's signals to/from Ethernet signals.

You use an Ethernet cable to connect the output from the cable-modem to the 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on a router with wireless capabilities. Then, you configure the router to create your own wireless network, with:
* an SSID ("network name")
* encryption level (use: WPA)
* a password for your network

Then, your wireless device can cite the SSID/password to authenticate to the router.

Telephone your Internet Service Provider.
Make them "EARN" this month's service-fees that you are paying them.
