| 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.
