      If you fit an ADSL Nation faceplate (and I think this is the best way to go) you can use a longer RJ11 cable to position your router 'upstairs'. These are available in different lengths up to about 30 metres, although I would not advise going as long as this. CableUniverse supply from 3-30 metre lengths, but I would advise keeping it as short as possible.
