secondly is my lan cable cat 6 u-utp patch cord the correct one?

 

thirdly using port forwarding program its says port 27960 udp  is not open........i play quake live which works but im unsure if i get packets  etc on time,my modem is technicolor  TG589vn v2 which was with xtra but now another provider.

well you havent showed us your line stats so we cant really comment on your connection

 

VDSL uses your phone line, your phone like is 2 wires so thats perfectly fine

 

cat 6 is also fine for a patch cable

 

you can get the stats from one of the menus or you can login to your modem using telnet

 

then type

 

o (modems ip address
your user name
your password

 

then "xdsl info expand=enabled" minus the quotes
