Best way to get ADSL upstairs?

The main bt phone box is downstairs and I want to use b/b upstairs. I've been told running extension cable upstairs is no good as adsl signal won't carry. Do I have to get the bt engineer in to do it properly or is there another way?

I`M USING A 25M EXTENSION CABLE FOR MY B/B. MY PC IS UPSTAIRS AND I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM

My main BT box is in the hall, and have fitted an extension cable up to my office upstairs. No problems at all with ADSL.

I have a filtered box from clarity & a cable running upstairs with no problem.

Thanks for that guys. How to fit the filters? I've got 2, so do I put 1 downstairs (with 2 phones coming off it plus the extension, and have 1 upstairs coming from end of extension?

I DIDN`T GET A PHONE EXT. CABLE. I GOT A 25M DSL CABLE AND RAN THAT FROM THE BT CONNECTION BOX IN THE HALL DOWNSTAIRS. THA WAY I ONLY USED ONE FILTER. PLUS IF YOU USE PHONE EXTENSION CABLE, THEN DSL CABLE, I DO BELIEVE YOU WILL BE PRONE TO PROBLEMS

padawan u need to hold down the shift key and caps lock to revert back to lower case....
if this dont help then i do have a disused keyboard you can have........
