BT Infinity Home Extension Kit - Wall socket to Data Extension Kit cable type?

Hi,

 

I have two lovely house rabbits that I want to throttle, although I've guarded their access to the area, have bitten through the cable from the wall socket to the data extension kit.

 

The cable between the two appears to be bespoke 2 pin RJ11 twisted pair cable for this purpose and the RJ11 cable I have that fits the socket is a 4 pin connection without a twisted pair doesn't work.

 

BT have been great as when I asked what the cable the guy who dealt with my call didn't know and just offered to send a cable pack, which is fantastic but I need some spares for a pre-emptive strike against the fluffly ones.

 

Anyone have any ideas?  My google-fu is turning up lots of questions regarding the connection to the home hub.

 

Thanks in advance.

Its should be two or three pair cat5. You can use normal 4pair cat5, if you cant get hold of two pair. Only one pair is required if its a vdsl data extension for the infinity modem.
