The one connected to the laptop isn't a router, it's a wireless network card. Unless the modem is a wireless router as well, you cannot connect to it.

If the laptop already has wireless you could add a wireless router to the modem (presumably modem was supplied by your ISP, so seek their advice on a compatible wireless router).
