I am an idiot when it comes to these things. I have a laptop, smart tv and tablet. I use Time Warner. We are charged for internet service and extra for wireless. If I just say I want internet service, will my computer and tv work without having to plug it into the router? I don't understand why you have to have both?

In order to access the internet via WiFi (wirelessly), you need a WiFi (wireless) signal within range of each of your devices.
In order to access the internet wired, you would need an Ethernet cable connected from your Time Warner modem/router to each one of the devices you wanted connected to the internet.
I don't believe I've ever seen a tablet with an Ethernet port; same for TVs. They only have WiFi capability built-in. Most laptops today do still have an Ethernet port, as well as built-in WiFi.

Thank you. I was wondering, because TWC charges one price for internet and an additional one for wireless. It was like $72 without phone or internet. I was confused.

One your Internet Service Provider's Cable|DSL modem is up and running, you can then attach your own wired and/or wireless router to it to share that internet connection with all of your devices.
