It is most likeley the 'phone extension cable'.

These are usually OK for phones but often cause problems with BroadBand, look for a cable that is recommended for high speed BB or have an extension socket fitted in the room where the PC is. click here I could only find a 25 foot one here but if you tak to them they may be able to make up any length.

hi thanks for the quick response i will try a better cable the extension cable comes from downstairs to a socket upstairs but it is to far away from the pc and it is connected to another
extension maybe i should try and get the cable straight to the computer thanks again chippy
