DSL - Difference between phone line cord & .....
I'm back! Verizon just dropped off the box containing all the goodies, but I can't hook it up until next week because of the "Service Ready Date".

Anyway, my first question. Is there even a specific cord for DSL connections? In order to run DSL, do you need a SPECIFIC cord, or can it just be a regular phone line cord?

Say, the cord I received with my verizon box, (The cord that plugs from the jack into my modem) , is not long enough, could I go out and buy a longer cord?

Thanks in advance. Sorry if this sounds confusing :X

You need twisted pair for DSL, a long flat cord will cause you endless grief. Try this: http://www.excelsus-tech.com/index.c...ail&id=1749755

I figured. We bought a 25ft flat wire from radio shack, they told us the cord did not matter, i insisted it did and I was right. Oh well the cord only cost 3$. Is that site trust worthy? Thank you JohnWill, once again.

I don't know if they're "trustworthy", but the cable was cheap enough. If you do a search, I'm sure you'll find lots of other folks that have it.
