I'm in the process of setting up a DSL modem/wifi router, which should be connected to a phone line that uses a single twisted pair. However, the phone line enters my house in a slightly inconvenient location. I could run a phone cable to a better location, but my house already has coaxial cables running through it, that I'm not using otherwise.
Can I connect the phone line to the coaxial cable, and plug in my modem at the other end? They're both pairs of copper wires; or is there a reason this shouldn't work?
