    I'm not sure why you would have a modem without an internet service as in such a scenario the modem is redundant however:

    Time Capsule is a wireless router that has a hard drive built in. Whether or not you connect it to a modem to access the internet, Time Capsule can still be configured to create a wireless network although this would be limited to enabling local network computers to communicate with each other and to access the Time Capsule hard drive for Time Machine back ups. You would also be able to stream to an Apple TV using airplay with such a set up but of course the Apple TVs internet features would not be available.
