Hello, I recently upgraded to the Max Power package internet and with it came a switch to the NVG589. Before that, I had moved to the modem to a different room and had no problem relocating using a standard telephone wire. The NVG589, however, only wants to work with the original data phone line that it was installed with.
My dilemma is that I would prefer to have my devices in a different room but I only have 1 ethernet cable long enough to run from the modem's location to my entertainment area. I am trying to minimize my costs as much as possible so I am wondering
A) does the IPN4320 receiver work if it is connected to a router connected to my NVG589?
B) would another option be to buy a longer "data" capable phone line? (of which I can not find anywhere near me)
Just for clarification, I do not wish to go wireless if possible as 3 of the devices I wish to connect with a wired device are for gaming.
Thanks for your time

B) You need a Cat5e rated cable with RJ11 ends to connect the NVG 589 to the wall plate. These pretty much have to be ordered on line if you're not equipped to make them yourself.

Uh, my thoughts, that restriction only appears in the section "AT&T U-VERSE VOICE"
