I have the 3801 2-wire modem. I want to move it to another room, and I purchased a 50ft. cat5e patch cable only to find out that the connector didn't match.
My question is for the phone jack to the back of the modem (green cable) can I use a regular phone line, or do I need something special?
50 foot isn't too long is it?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for replying my thoughts.
So you're saying that a coupler that is RJ45 on both ends will connect the cat5e patch cable I bought with the green cable that came with modem?
Just to be sure you understand the cat5e patch cable I bought will plug in to the wall jack just fine, but it won't fit in the back of the 2-wire.
So a RJ45 coupler will work on the green cable as well?
