Longer Telephone Cable Needed

Morning all,

 

Just moved to Sky Broadband today and the supplied connecting cable between the phone socket and router is a bit too short. Can I just ask somebody to confirm that I need a BT phone line plug to RJ11 and should it be 2 or 4 wire and crossover or not?

 

Would this be suitable: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crossover-Telephone-Extension-Virgin-British-White/dp/B081F98CCM

 

Thanks.

@Essex+Stephis this the phone that you are trying to connect to the router to the filter or flitered facplate for the internet that has to rj11 sockets on each end?

@Essex+Steph did you get the cable you found on Amazon and does it work?

 

I have the same issue, moved into a new flat and the phone socket and the plug are positioned in useless positions. 😁 That's why I would love to get a longer phone cable to replace "the grey cable".

@Myrthl all you need is a simple dsl cable which can be bought online in whatever length you need as long as it has a rj11 plug on each end.  The link above is for a crossover cable which is a bit odd it may work but no idea why it is described like that.
