Does the ECM-1240 with the wireless option use WiFi to communicate with a wireless internet router?

No. The wireless communication does not use WiFi type communication such as that used to communicate with a laptop. Data is transmitted using the ZigBee protocol on a mesh network. Although it operates on the same 2.4GHz frequency as WiFi, the protocol is completely different. The mesh network aspect allows the insertion of additional nodes which would automatically repeat the signal where range is an issue.
