Okay, then it sounds like the thingy I linked to (or something like it) might work. Basically if you can get an adapter that presents itself to the laptop as a standard VGA (or HDMI, or whatever) display, then that hardware device could do the wireless communication with the TV or the other computer or whatever, and the laptop wouldn't need any drivers. I didn't check whether the adapter I linked to needs an external power supply, though, which would make it useless in this situation.

Curious what your objection is to using a hardware solution? Is it that the laptop may not have a VGA out? Or that you don't want to run wires from the laptop to the TV? If the latter, you could get something like this... (I'd leave this as a comment rather than an answer, but I don't yet have comment rights.)
