For your initial installation you need at least two standard RJ11-phone cables, of which one would connect the "DSL"-socket of the Fritz!Box Fon with the ADSL filter and the other a regular phone with one of the "FON"-sockets of the Fritz!Box Fon. If you want to run a second phone, you'll need a third standard RJ11-phone cable.
In order to hook up your Fritz!Box Fon to the telephone landline, you'll need a custom cable as depicted below connecting the ADSL filter's BT-socket with the "ISDN/analog"-socket of the Fritz!Box, which presumably isn't sold anywhere in NZ. This special cable needs to connect pin 2 and 5 of a BT431A plug (which is connected to the ADSL filter) with pins 1 and 8 of an RJ45 plug (which is connected to the Fritz!Box).
With a crimping tool and an RJ45-plug you can modify a regular BT-phone cable easily within seconds. Alternatively you could try connecting a cut BT-phone cable with a cut RJ45 network cable through a screw terminal.
If you wonder why AVM have placed the analogue telephone signal on the outer two pins of the "ISDN/analog"-socket instead of the inner ones, as it's usually the case with western plugs, here's the answer: Pins 3 to 6 are used for ISDN, a digital phone system, which the Fritz!Box Fon also fully supports alternatively analoge landlines.
