connecting to broadband

My computer is situated more than 10 metres away from my main phone socket and I have tried to connect to broadband but it is too far away.
Is it possible to use a wireless router to connect to broadband instead. If so could you please tell me which one would be best.


thank you

Broadband should work perfectly well on a 10 metre extension. Have you tried it?

as graham said, it will work ace on a 10m lead, and, yes, a wireless router will let you take the PC anywhere in the house....

or of course, get another phone socket and wire it in.....

Hi, please describe how the extension to the PC is connected.

It is very easy to plug a filter into the master socket, and connect the extension to this filter's phone socket. This will filter out the broadband!

The PC was connected via the main phone socket through a filter and then via a 15 metre extension cable.
Thanks for the advice about using my e-mail address. I'm pretty new to computers and not particularly clued up on these things.

I got the voyager 2000 adsl wireless router, all set up and running in less than 15 minutes...

Mine is ovetr 10 metres away from the phone socket, I had a problem with using standard extention cable but with proper cable made up into a 40 modem cable it works fine.
