   If the computer does not have a plug on the back for the phone line, it must not have a phone modem.  You need to buy a phone modem and install it on the computer.
   As far as I know, the phone modem cannot be hooked up directly to the wireless router.  It must be hooked up to the computer.

You say it has one Modem listed, if that is installed the port must be there,

Check in Device Manager and look for Modem.
