Did you try B&Q. You would need to buy a double socket separately to plug into your telephone input socket and modem leads are a common commodity. There are two types of modem lead (2 wire and 4 wire) You would need to know which one you want. If you still can't find one email me your address and I will send you a modem lead. You will have to get the double phone socket yourself.
A double phone socket from one of the discount stores such as B and M will be less than £2 - a considerable reduction on what some places charge..:-)
For those interested who have dialup connections, CPC in Preston click here sells a privacy double telephone socket.
This not only prevents someone cutting off your internet connection if they pick up the phone and start dialling, it also prevents people who pick up an extension phone(s) listening to a private conversation on the main phone.
My better half thinks it is very frustrating......:-)
