    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 :)

    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. :)
