What broadband have you got? DSL or cable?

Well assuming your talking about ADSL BB, go buy an extension kit, the type that has a socket you can fit to the wall/skirting board. Also makes for a neater job. Then you need a couple of filters, one so you can connect the DSL modem too upstairs and the other downstairs to connect to the socket your phone will be plugged into.

Hope that helps

Just in the process of putting a wireless access point on my pc upstairs which already has a router attached to it , to connect my pc downstairs to broadband. £60 from E-buyer for the access point and pci card but the numpties sent a PCMCIA in error so not up and running yet.
