You just need a longer ethernet (CatV) cable to connect from your micro-filter to your router.

Just a standard phone to rj45 cable.
For the absolute best connection you want to keep the cable from the socket to the router as short as possible. Depending on why your moving it you could get a network switch or wireless repeater/bridge connected via standard network cable which in theory is a lot better for speed.

The connection between micro filter and standard ADSL broadband routers is RJ45 on both ends. You don't want a phone connection on one end or an ethernet cable.

Also the same goes if you have fibre broadband but the filter is built into the faceplate of your NTE5 (Main) phone socket.

Yes, data transfer rates are much faster with Cat6, although unless you're running a large business network it's not a difference that you would notice with home use.

FYI your fibre broadband is likely to be 'FTC' which means Fibre To Cabinet. Between the cabinet and your property it will be running on the existing Openreach copper infrastructure!

thank you andy that's great.

RJ11 as somebody has already said keep it as short as possible for best speeds, rj45 cat5 or cat6 cable is always the best to extend as you won't lose much speed especially home use.

If you're extending your phone socket, check out the Broadband Accelerator from BT. It's basically a filter that fits to your main telephone socket. It will filter out some of the interference you might pick up from the extension.

Besides this, it's best not to extend this lead. If you can fit a modem right next to your socket, then run Cat5 cabling to your wifi router that's the best option. You won't lose signal with the cat5 ethernet cable, but you will on the telephone cable.

thanks folks that's super help.

hi tony, am leaving the phone socket at point of entry where it is fitted which is about 4 metres from where the hub and power are located, so its deciding where and with what to extend. there is no power near the bt socket to power anything there with it and don't want extension leads running all over the place either.
