      Where can I get short cable lengths from?

      At present I have long, long runs of this cable all bunded up with elastic bands and it looks really messy.

      In the constant battle to keep cabling tidy and to a minimum does anyone know where I can get 1m lengths from?

      I need Qty 2 cables that go from the phone socket (standard BT) into the back of my Sky Boxes.

      I need Qty 1 cable to go from my ADSL Filter Dongle thingy into the back of my Sky Broadband Modem/Router thingy.

      Sorry for the crap descriptions

      Hope you can help.

      Try a google search, or ADSL Nation.

      Eltee. I bought an additional cable (the Yellow one)
      from my Sky router, to a second computer from
      ukdvdr. The new one was blue. LOL.

      Cables :: UKDVDR Ltd

      Available in short and long lengths.
      Very cheap so you don't make an expensive mistake.
      Like you I find all the technical names and
      numbers confusing.



      My Max,

      If you're looking to replace your cables, I got some made to measure from a local electrics shop. I paid by the foot (tut-tut should have been the metre, but he's a traditionalist!) and they serve me well. May be worth asking.
