what exactly do you want to do wirelessly? just surf the web right? the Vonage device isn't wireless and has nothing to do with your wireless setup. they make a wireless device which is probably what cost $140 (linksys wrt54gp2) but it's unnecessary, especially if you have a Vonage device already. as paulanddonnaknight said, you can put the linksys rt31p2 after the modem (modem cord into wan/internet port of rt31p2) and then a cord from an rt31p2 lan port into the wan/internet port of the wireless router.
the other option is to simply hook the rt31p2 behind the wireless router (lan port on wireless to wan/internet port of rt31p2) but you risk call breakup and such if you use the internet while talking on the phone.
these are both basic setups that are well covered at
chances are you don't need to call your isp, but you still haven't mentioned who it is, so that's making this a lot harder. if you plug your Vonage device into the cable modem and you see phone 1 light up, you don't need to worry about it (you might have to power down the cable modem and Vonage device, then power on the cable modem, then the Vonage device just to make sure it can pull an ip)

Thanks to everyone, but I have just finished speaking with another customer service tech (just didn't get the right one the first time I guess) and he was very, very, very patient with me and didn't keep me on the phone forever......I really do appreciate everyone's help as well for being so patient and understanding as well.....

Please stay away from VTech. The 5.8 AT&T is the best to be had at this point. They are more pricey than other models but they offer color screens, hands free on every phone, the ability to hear voice mail from any handset, downlaodable ringtones, custon wall papers, standard rechargeable batteries, crystal clear sound and no interference woth 2.4 wireless network. Buy the base and two handsets at Costco ($150) and then you can pick up extra handsets from BestBuy. BestBuy only sells the Base and 1 handset for $150. The AT&T works perfectly with your Vonage system.

The setup I have is similar to #1 - the cord runs from my cable modem (from the ethernet jack) to the my Dell wireless router (to the internet jack). There is a cord in my Dell Wireless router in a LAN jack (there are 3 LAN jacks) but it goes to nothing.

Are you saying that I take the cord from the internet/ethernet jack from my cable modem or from the Dell wireless router and connect it to the "internet" jack in my Linksys router? Which cord from where goes into one of the 3 "ethernet" jacks on the Linksys router? and I know to take the phone cord from the wall jack to jack on the Linksys router. In addition to that, when I call my ISP, what is it that I am asking them to do? I know these all sound like really stupid questions, but again, it's just that when I call tech support, I would probably spend my entire evening on the phone with them and that's not what I want.

Thanks again!

Don't know if you got this worked out but from the sound of it you have the right gear, it just needs to be plugged in correctly. It should go something like this:

- Modem line goes into the Internet or WAN port on the Dell router.

- Any hard wired devices then go into the LAN line on the Dell router. The Vonage device could be connected directly this way. Other non-laptop computers in the house could also plug in here.

- Since the Dell router is wireless, you configure the wireless card on your laptop tp work with the signal to get an internet connection.

That should be it. The router simply takes the internet signal from the modem and makes it available to multiple machines behind the router.

As a side note, make sure you secure your wireless signal otherwise you'll be broadcasting free internet to your neighbors.
