I want to move my modem to a different room. I have already tried this and my modem did not pick up any internet in any other jack than the one it is plugged into now. My dad said something about swichting some wires in phone box in the basement. I don't really know anything else but can anyone explain what I need to do to transfer interent to my room instead? thanks

sure though if you do it wrong....

You have to determine what wires go from the basement phone connection to the room the dsl goes to. You then have to see where the wires come from the room you want it to go to.

You then move the wires for the dsl to the room you want it in.

This all depends on how the phone wiring is setup.
