Best way to get ADSL upstairs?

The main bt phone box is downstairs and I want to use b/b upstairs. I've been told running extension cable upstairs is no good as adsl signal won't carry. Do I have to get the bt engineer in to do it properly or is there another way?

I`M USING A 25M EXTENSION CABLE FOR MY B/B. MY PC IS UPSTAIRS AND I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM

SORRY ABOUT THE CAPITALS. MY CAPS KEY IS SMASHED

My main BT box is in the hall, and have fitted an extension cable up to my office upstairs. No problems at all with ADSL.

I have a filtered box from clarity & a cable running upstairs with no problem.

Thanks for that guys. How to fit the filters? I've got 2, so do I put 1 downstairs (with 2 phones coming off it plus the extension, and have 1 upstairs coming from end of extension?

I DIDN`T GET A PHONE EXT. CABLE. I GOT A 25M DSL CABLE AND RAN THAT FROM THE BT CONNECTION BOX IN THE HALL DOWNSTAIRS. THA WAY I ONLY USED ONE FILTER. PLUS IF YOU USE PHONE EXTENSION CABLE, THEN DSL CABLE, I DO BELIEVE YOU WILL BE PRONE TO PROBLEMS

padawan u need to hold down the shift key and caps lock to revert back to lower case....
if this dont help then i do have a disused keyboard you can have........
