    Telephone cables as opposed to ethernet cables.

    So, I moved into my new apartment (for school) and found out that the jack in the wall is too small for an ethernet cable, so I use wireless. I'm having lag issues and hoping that it's wireless only and maybe I can just buy a telephone cord and plug it in to my motherboard for a direct connection. My question is are there any big differences in telephone cables and it should be able to fit into an Asus P8Z77-V LK mobo right?

    A telephone cable wont fit.
    A telephone cable is 4 cables and uses a RJ11 connector.
    An Ethernet cable is 8 cables and uses a RJ45 connector.

    I was afraid of that. Looks I'm just stuck with wireless then.

    where do you get your wireless from then? If you have a wireless router, just take a cable from it to the pc?

    what kind of apartment is it? it is university owned? is it seperate? can you get cable so you can get internet via coax? do you have a wireless modem in your apartment? is the wireless just managed by your apartment?

    download speeds may be fast, but latency is much more important in games. wireless has higher latency.
