In almost all cases, you will need a "standard" Ethernet twisted pair cable (10/100 Base T). The connectors used are RJ-45 and the pin connections are as follows: 1 - > 1 2 - > 2 3 - > 3 6 - > 6 In some DSL internet modems, you may need a "crossover" Ethernet cable with the connections as follows: 1 - > 3 2 - > 6 3 - > 1 6 - > 2 You can buy them in any computer shop or if you are the hands-on type, you can buy a RJ-45 crimping tool, RJ-45 connectors and some standard twisted pair cable. Here is a very good URL that shows you the cable connections with pictures: Good luck... Buy a preterminated Rj45 Cat6 patchcord as they use stranded cable. The shorter, the better. Terminating your own in the field using mod plugs is for emergencies only and uses solid copper cable.
