If you see back side of the modem a hole from where you can rest the modem, so please reset the modem to solve your problem. In most cases it will work.
Note: all you saved settings in modem will be erased and you need to reconfigure your modem again (eg: user name and password, etc.).

Unfortunately since the key is masked on your router even when looking at it physcally on the router, you would not be able to determine the key. The easiest thing to do is to change the key and match it with what you configure on your laptop.
Follow step 6 on this link to create a new key (but choosing WPA instead of WEP): http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/linksys/index.html
Sounds like you may have an encryption problem. Are you running an open or secure network? Try setting it to Security > Disabled and see if you can get on. (Please note where you were before you disable the security) This will be under the Wireless > Wireless Security tab. If you can connect after disabling the security then you probably did not enter you key code correctly. OR... You may have set it to a level of encryption that your wireless laptop does not support. (Don't know the age of the laptop - some older ones will support WEP only and "b" only.) Make sure that you are broadcasting in both "b" & "g" ranges and if WPA won't work for you, then try WEP. It is a little difficult for me to tell you exactly what to do because I do not have all the necessary information but perhaps this will help. The main thing is to disable the security first and see if you can connect. If you can, then this is a BIG clue and good news. Then you know it is an encryption issue.
Typically the encryption choices are WPA - WPA-PSK - WPA2 - WPA2-PSK - RADIUS & WEP. I would recommend WPA-PSK with TKIP for normal "modern" applications. If your WRTP54G has the Auto Security setup button on the front of the router you may want to use it to automatically set up your wireless security. You can tell by feeling the raised rectangular push button on the front panel.
Sorry but that seems to be a pretty convoluted explanation. Here is how it should go. Vonage unit connected to phone line(s) and cable modem. Linksys connected to Vonage box. Computers connected to Linksys. Ethernet has a length limitation of about 300 feet before you need another switch (hub) or a repeater. Does your wire length exceed this?
