I have been reading about a PPP connection for my DVR because I have no landline. My only problem is I need a 30-40' cable. Is there anywhere I can get this? I would prefer one cable so I can easily run it through my wall from the crawl space. Does anyone sell a cabe that will work in this length? Thanks.

If you're still looking,try pccables.com for the null modem cable,(which won't be long enough for you),but just daisy chain another cord or two to it,like stereo extension cords for headphones,(the mini plug type). Works like a charm,mine is 50' away.
