If I connect my laptop to TV directly via HDMI why would I need a router? Please read the posts carefully 'n please loose the hate

I tried plugging in a ethernet cable directly from my TV to the Verizon Fios router and still while playing the 1080p 3dSBS mkv file I saw that it was trying to load the file meaning the blue line on the bottom of the player was filling up but at a very slow pace. I paused the video and it started loading slowly. This is not the solution as then I would have to let the entire movies load before I could play it so that it smooth.
Also, is there a way to connect the iphone or ipad to the tv. I mean I saw something as wifi screen sharing, but how to enable this on the iphone or ipad?
I noticed that the best way to view large file movies is via the USB ports. It is very fast and has instantaneous loading ... no buffer issues.
I check my HDDs and I have one formatted as FAT32 (w/ 4GB file size limitation) and another as NTFS (I access it on Mac via NTFS-3G plugin and it has no 4GB limitation
). My 3rd HDD which is formatted as MAC OS Journaled is not recognized by the tv; and the bad part is that this HDD has the most data I need to be read ... I need to find extra space to dump these files and reformat the hdd. As you said this reformatting to NTFS needs to be done on a PC; I'm not sure if there is a app for mac which does that.
The wifi screen sharing can be done if your laptop has an intel i3 processor and up which support WiDi (Wireless Display tech). I dont remember reading about ipad/iphone screen sharing on LG tv's ... I'd guess you need AirPlay for that to work.
