Ok I know that this has proberly been covered but tried the search box with no joy (suprise), I have today recieved my broadband connection kit from Freeserve and am trying to figure out the filter connection. My comp is in the study (upstairs) and is plugged into the BT box (downstairs) via a standard telephone extension lead, the filter I know must be plugged into the main BT box with the telephone coming out of that (still with me?) with the modem cable coming out of the other port, BUT the cable supplied is only about 12 inchs long!! the book also says extension leads are not recommended. So how do I connect this? can I get a modem cable about 12feet long? and will it work with the usb modem?
Anyone else had this and how can you get round it??
