      RJ11 cables a generally available up to 20 metres, although I don't know if this is the maximum available/usable. If you do decide to go this way, measure what you actually need, don't make it much longer than necessary and don't buy the cheapest, go for quality.

      But you'd be much better off moving the router downstairs so it's close to the master socket and running an Ethernet cable up to a little 5-port Ethernet switch, placed where the router is now.

      Ethernet cables work reliably at up to 100 metres, whereas every metre of RJ11 cable you use will be degrading the ADSL signal before the router has a chance to process it.
