[modem/router] Phone/ DSL Cable

I'm currently using a regular phone line to connect to my modem. From the wall jack to dsl modem. However I can use an RJ11 cable to replace that phone line ?

Can I use this product to replace the phone line? Will it fit on the wall jack ?

I want to replace my old phone line and I'd been looking for a good cable for dsl.

I need you help, any advice is appreciated it.

Yes, it will fit into the telephone wall jack.... from what I read in the comments, that cable is twisted pair.

Anyways, that same cable is on Walmarts website [For less money]: »www.walmart.com/ip/Belkin-F3L900···13077147 for $5.35 - it can be sent to a store near you for free. [Estimated shipping - if shipped to lower 48 states is $0.97 cents..]

You can use any cable as long as it has RJ-11 plugs on the ends.

Twisted pair is preferred but given the short length it really doesn't matter.

The only type of cable you want to stay away from is high quality extremely flexible silver satin cable. To make the cable so flexible they use a tinsel conductor wrapped around a small string.

Thanks for your answers. I will then purchase this item since I have an old phone line that is very old.
