I need some inputs on how to get rid of all the wires that are going through in my study/office room.

I already got a wireless keyboard/mouse from Logitech, so I am covered on that front.

My cable modem connects to my voip modem and then on to a wireless router. I am planning on buying a unified router+voip modem from my provider(vonage). That will get rid of some wires.

Any other suggestions specific to this wire clutter is appreciated.

You could clear some of the cables by throwing out your computer

I use a variety of cable organizers: velcro wraps, split tubes, etc. But I have some hard to reach places that are still horrible tangles.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

I don't undestand the problem. I have a lot of equipment in my office/study: phone, computer, DSL modem, printer, scanner, speakers, subwoofer, but all the wires are behind the back wall of the desk, so there is no clutter. Maybe you need a good desk?

Ebay is a great thing.

I came across some stuff that can help the clutter look and feel

Just search for 'cable organizer' on ebay, you will see different options.
I agree. Here's the link:
