TV as PC Monitor on Wireless Network

Is there a way of using your TV as a PC Monitor on a Wireless Network?  I can stream music, pictures and video via my PlusNet wireless network to the TV at acceptable quality (I use  D-Link dsm 510).  However,  what I would like to do is to use the TV as a big PC monitor via the wireless network (not via a cable link).  My keyboard and mouse are wireless and have a reasonable range.  So if I could somehow get a monitor display on the TV via wireless, I could then use the keyboard and mouse to control the PC remotely.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
