Broadband Connection Help please

  spark79 11:40 18 Feb 2007

I have just ordered BT Broadband and am waiting for activation. I am just going through the set-up in my mind in preparation for more than likely making a mess of it on the day and have a question.

With my dial-up access I currently have an extension lead from my PC to my phone socket (it is on the other side of the room) but I wondered if I would be able to use the same cable to connect my broadband? It is just a basic phone extension lead, do I need something different or will this suffice?

Many thanks and I look forward to a reply.

Mine works off a 25m extension OK, with a filter of course.
