Re: Using DSL extension cable

Hi, did the Infinity Extension work for you and can you still buy them from a shop or have they been discontinued?

Re: Using DSL extension cable

@Starwire2000 you are posting on a very old thread.

 

They are readily available.

 

Look on Amazon, or another site, for RJ11 data extension cable.

Re: Using DSL extension cable

Thanks but I'm not sure an RJ11 Cable will help but I'll give one a try. I don't have an Amazon near me but there is an Argos and a Tesco, do you think they'd sell them?

Re: Using DSL extension cable

If an RJ11 won't help what are you trying to do? The connection between master socket and hub is RJ11.

 

Amazon is an online store so there won't be one near you. Argos, Tesco, Asda, PC World Curries and Maplan will all sell them but expect to pay significantly more. You may wish to try Ebay.

Re: Using DSL extension cable

Thank you for that but no it's definitely not the cable I need so glad I didn't have a wasted trip to Argos. I'm after one of the black ones with the yellow plugs.

Re: Using DSL extension cable

You are being extremely vague. What is the problem you have and what EXACTLY are you looking for?

The colour of the cable and the colour of the plugs are irrelevant, they can come in many colours but have the same core to the cable and connectors. It is the type of plug that you need to specify. If you are not sure you should say what you are wanting to connect the cable from and to and somebody might be able to tell you what cable and connectors you need.

Re: Using DSL extension cable

'The black ones with the yellow plugs' are normally Ethernet cables which connect hub to device not hub to openreach wall socket

 

it would be a help as suggested you are more specific what you are trying to achieve

Re: Using DSL extension cable

Sorry but I'm not very experienced in Information Communications, most of my working life was spent as a Park Attendant, except for a brief spell in a crisp factory so it's all a bit Japanese to me.

I'm just after a cable to plug in to my internet box that has yellow plugs.
