I assume you want to connect your smart TV to your network (e.g. to get Internet access for NetFlix).
Depending upon the precise model, it will support WiFi or wired Ethernet (or both). If your TV supports a wired connection, that will provide the best performance. All you need is a spare port on your router/switch and a straight-through network cable.
If your TV supports WiFi, you'll need to get into the its setup to enter the settings matching your home network - that is, you must choose the SSID (essentially, your WiFi network name; so your TV connects to your network and not your neighbor's) and wireless security information.
If you have made no changes to your network configuration, try unplugging the power from your router and modem for a minute. Then restore power to your modem, wait for the lights to come on and stay steady (all but PC and activity), then restore power to your router. Once the router finishes "start up" and establishes a connection to your modem, you should be able to connect to it and it should be able to assign an IP address to your computer. If you are unable to see your router in the list of available network connections, then you will need to a) refresh the list of available networks or b) write back for help on how to check the router's configuration. Either way, let me know how you make out.
That keyboard is not wireless, it is cabled to the computer. If you are looking h=to have your computer connect to the internet using wireless, you need to have a wireless access point connected to a cable modem or DSL, as well as a wireless network card in the computer.
No--this connection refers to the computer's network connections. Has nothing to do with the mouse and keyboard. One icon would probably refer to the wired connection (where the ethernet cable plugs in) and the other might be for a wireless connection. If you have a desktop computer, you might even have 2 wired connections. An X through them says that (1) your network cable is not plugged in or (2) your wireless connection isn't connected.
