      have you considered getting a longer network cable instead (RJ45)

      the cable you are after is RJ11.

      Another option you may wish to consider is buying a wireless network card or dongle thingy (both about 20) for your PC or laptop - then if your layout allows plug the router into the filtered master socket and connect wirelessly to it from the PC or laptop?

      Guys I just ordered one,I just hope my conection works now when it arrives


      I will have to look into wireless adapters for my PC,as mine is tucked away in an alcove,in the corner of the living room,its about 4 metre's in a straight line from the telephone socket to my PC,would it be able to get a signal from this location ?

      Anyway thanks for the help
