First you need to mention the type of internet you are having.
You have mentioned that your Modem is connected to router and WiFi.. but if its a modem then what is the need to connect it to router ?
Modem is either used on DSL or on simple dialup connection and sometimes to Cable ..
Is it cable connection and also let us know that the router which you have mentioned is in your control or its  done by ISP ?
