Where can I get a cable made for my Virgin Router, the one that goes from broadband socket to router.

I need a long one, the one they have give me is to short, is it just normal coaxial cable?

It's nothing to do with grammar/spelling, just that if you're looking for help, it's better if people can read what you're saying at the first attempt.

That's the one, the "screw on" bits are called F type connectors.

Wilkos is your best bet- satelite cable and f connectors and some black satellite tape and jobs a good un. Not expensive and decent quality

I have been told that the shorter the cable the better, and have been advised to use a Ethernet Cable instead.

The shorter the cable from the socket to the router box the better, but sometimes it just isn't practical where it is, I moved mine to give a better wireless signal.

If is from the socket on the wall to the router, it's satellite cable with F type connectors, screw them in firmly but not over tight.

From the router to the PC use Ethernet RJ45 cable.

You will get a slight loss the greater the distance, but we are talking milliseconds, and it's still faster than using wireless.
