I need a 15m modem to modem cable. Could anyone reccomend an online retailer or shop in the North West which might stock or make one up for me?

"modem to modem" ?????

To do what precisely?

Isn't it obvious 2 modems are quicker than one 2 X 56K = 112K simple. Sorry, couldn't resist it. TR (head hanging in shame)

I have an internet alert that tells me when someone is phoning up when I am using the phone line to connect online. I want to connect a PC in one room to this internet alert in a different room.

Thanks for the link. I haven't been able to check it yet as their server is having problems.
Cheers John.

Clear as mud to me I'm afraid. How do you connect a PC to an Internet alert?

Do you mean a telephone cable with a standard RJ11 connector at each end, rather than a BT type connector? If so, any phone shop can make you one in a second or two.

Another way is to get a normal BT extension cable of the required length, plus an RJ11 converter of the type which came with your modem, and connect up the modems with the RJ11 at each end.
