Yup, Stan's right on ... look for cables and an inline connector described as straight through 6P6C (6 pin 6 cable) and stay away from anything described as telephone extension cable.
It is very hard to find a matching black coiled straight through cable, a couple of sources are the DEC cable for an ASGT mount or the or the old ST-4 cable that came with the GPUSB product (today this is a flat cable). Most folks don't bother with trying to find a coiled cable and simply use a flat cable.

Look on the internet for RJ12 'DATA' cables. They are wired 'straight' thru. Phone cables are wired 'twisted' and will not work. You can find them as long as you want up to hundreds of feet. You will also need a connector available any where for a $1 or two.
I went to radio shack and bought a 6' extension cable and a connector block right off the rack. Cost was about $8.
Plugged it in to my CG5 GT and it works fine.
