Don't confuse modem and router. If you have the proper router, I think that you can set up wifi

Here is a link to guide you:

You are welcome.

Remember, a tablet is already equipped for WiFi but a computer needs a Wifi adapter which you can purchase at Best Buy or other electronic store.

Ensure that you set up on Verizon secured connection, for which you will need a password.
Thanks you that helps a lot. Larry

I forgot about the usb wifi adapter, don't buy a cheap one. The more you pay better the quality in distance and speed connection. I have wifi with a dongle on the computer and I'm getting 300mbps. Purchased it at Staples. The router is in the basement, while the computer is upstairs.
Thanks I'm learning more all the time. Larry
