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

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.

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.
