Broadband USB Modem cant reach pc, so.........???

Whats the best solution to this? Im guessing that as my modem connects to a USB port I should get a USB extention cable, rather than a phone line extention cable.

Is this right?

yep, surprised that you didn't get a cable with the modem..

it would usually just be a standard usb cable A-B, being the two different types of ports.

Note that usb will not work if the cable is over 5 m so you might be better of with a phone extension to prevent signal degredation or use a powered usb hub
