Yes.

And be sure your wireless modem is compatible with your ISP. Wouldn't it be better to buy a wireless router?

If you already have a modem ...

you can consider to buy only a router. If you buy a modem be sure you know it is compatible with your ISP. My modem-router-combination came from the ISP with the subscription so I hadn't to do any settings myself. But if you start using a new modem, you'll have to do the settings yourself.
