In the same way that you can't put a SIM card into a rotary dial phone to make it handle mobile telephony, a modem for fixed line has not a single clue about mobile communication.

But it would be quite a bit more expensive to attempt to convert by adding a WiFi Device than to just replace it with what you require.

Failing that you can connect a WiFi Access Point directly downline of the Modem to get the same effect.

Oh yea. Wireless can be two-way

To me a wireless modem is a modem for mobile access to internet (GSM, 3G etc.)
An ADSL modem with wireless router is a different thing.
(And for that, I prefer to have two boxes, one adsl modem and a separate wireless router.)
