Hacking Home DSL?

I signed up with Sunrise and got the Sunrise Internet Box (SIB). All is functional.

My fuse cupboard, where the DSL cable enters, is central to my apartment and is a good place to hook up the router, but there is no DSL connector (inside or just outside the cupboard is OK). At present the SIB is in the living room, and signal strength falls off at the other end of the apartment (Android Ooklo speed test over the 5G SSID gave 200 Mbit/s near the router, versus vs 20 Mbit/s in a bedroom furthest away).

As you can see from the first attachment, the blue and white wires from the grey cable on the right jammed into the out of focus block on the left. The blue and white wires from the two white cables are also jammed into this connector. One of the white cables goes to the telephone socket in the living room. The other goes to one of the bedrooms.

It looks like "all I have to do" is to make up a (RJ11?) cable to go into the DSL socket of the SIB, and jam two more cables into the out of focus block. Is it really that straightforward?

What are the pin outs?

Can I just sacrifice one of the many RJ11 cables I have lying around?
