Are you asking about the Sky Portal WiFi module? It'll work with a standard phone cord. So a quick extension cable and you're done.

It is important that the extension cable is "straight through" (pin 1 to pin 1, pin 2 to pin 2, etc.). Many RJ-12 extensions or couplers are "flipped" (pin 1 to pin 6, pin 2 to pin 5, etc.). A flipped cable will damage the electronics.
My recommendation for the SkyPortal WiFi module is to use the standard Celestron splitter cable as an extension. Here is the original Celestron part:
Here is a third party splitter that works just as well:
