Sorry but these are two different signals and they cannot be converted with what you have.
You will need to purchase a "wireless access point" and plug it into one of the outputs of your cable modem (I assume you have more then 1 output and this is also acting as a hub). If you only have one output from the cable modem and you need additional ports for a wired connection to a desktop PC or other equipment then I would suggest purchasing a combination hub with wired and wireless access points.
