If you have an OpenReach MK faceplate they have an RJ45 port.
RJ11 to RJ11 cable will fit but RJ45 to RJ11 cable fits much better.

Ebay has a couple sellers with good cables also.

What J0hn said.

I have used the Tandy / ADSL Nation RJ11-RJ11 cables which are excellent but as J0hn says an RJ45-RJ11 cable is a better snug fit. There are some good eBay sellers who will make custom short cables for you. I used one and was very satisfied, but Iíve lost the contact details unfortunately. Iíve used the run-it-direct ones too, which j0hn mentioned.

thanks Weaver, I am still deciding on where to put the new Zyxel so haven't got around to buying one at the length I need yet
