| RJ45 to RJ11
|We need to replace an RJ11 wire with a cat5 RJ45 wire; where can we find an adapter for this purpose? We are running DSL over the RJ11 but the wire is too long, we are losing signal. Verizon says use RJ45.

There is not an adapter that changes this. These are two different standards. If you are uin a home, I doubt if the cable is too long as it has already run thousands of feet from the the CO.
What I think they are asking for you to do is to put in a dedicated run of category 5e to your DSL modem.
