Network & Distance from point of origin

This could just as easily be in the Absolute Beginners section, but here goes:

I'm getting BT Broadband (the most basic package with a Voyager 205 modem/router) almost entirely to play PS2 online, but will also involve a small network (PC/Printer/Phone).

However, this little hive of industry will take place at the back of the house and there are no phone plugs set up currently. To get it to the back, do I need to invest in CAT5 cabling, or can I buy bog standard 20m telephone cabling?

I don't want to lose any 'juice' you see.

I'm well aware that I might be talking absolute drivel, so apologies in advance!

If everything is going to be in the back, phone cabling will do. If you want the pc in the front and the PS2 in the back, get cat5e to link to the PS2.
