Connecting Cat5e cable to BT 78A junction box

Hi, I recently moved to a new house but there were no telephone sockets in the entire house. There was only a BT junction box with the outside wire connected to it. I had thought of calling in a BT engineer to install a new telephone cable and socket but its expensive and I have recently found out that its better to have cat5e or cat6 cabling and connections. I have read that it improves internet speeds and there is less interruptions with the signals. I had problems in the past with my internet due to the cabling being interrupt by several appliances and neighbours appliances. 
Can anyone with good knowledge on telephone installation give a DIY guide on how to connect a Cat5e cable to a BT 78A junction box? I have the necessary equipment ready. Thank you for your time.

Hi. We are trying to setup a phillips tv through a bt vision box please


  1. A TV aerial feed - The BT Vision box gets its digital TV signals over-the-air, so needs a TV aerial. This needs to be connected to the aerial input socket on the V-Box. There is an output RF aerial socket to allow you to connect an aerial feed to a TV if required.
  2. SCART lead - You need to make a connection from the Vision+ box to the TV using a SCART lead. If you have a HD TV set, you can also connect via an HDMI lead (not supplied).
  3. Connection to Broadband - You'll need to connect from the BT Vision+ box to a BT Broadband connection. This is done using the BT Home Hub. The Home Hub is the Broadband router supplied by BT, and it connects into to your phone line to give you Internet access-The most common way to make the connection, is to connect an Ethernet (networking) cable from the BT Vision+ box to one of the Ethernet ports on the Home Hub. If you can't make a direct connecting to the Home Hub, you can use powerline adapters to make the connection. The self-install kit includes two Powerline adapters to allow you to connect to the Home Hub if it's in a different room to the BT Vision+ Box.
  4. The BT Vision v-box has an additional scart socket, which can be connected to a video or dvd recorder.

My in house telephones are not working,but the internet is working.WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THE TEELEPHONE WORK AGAIN.


Have you paid the phone bill? Are you supposed to have phone service?

Providing that you have a contract with the phone company and it's paid up, take a hardwire telephone out to the grey junction box on the outside of the house. Open the junction box and plug your phone into one of the two phone jacks inside, Try the phone. If you get no dial tone, try the other phone jack.

If you get no dial tone from either phone jack, borrow a hardwire telephone from a neighbor and try both jacks again with the borrowed telephone.

If no dial tone with your phone or your neighbor's phone, then the problem is on the phone company's side of that junction box.

If your neighbor's phone works but yours doesn't, the problem is your phones - lightening strike, maybe?

If your phone works in the junction box but not inside the house, then the wiring from the junction box to your house jacks has a bad connection somewhere. Someone - you or someone else - will have the arduous task of tracking down where that bad connection is.

Two telephone mastersockets?


First things first.

You want to drag the phone line around for the Sky+ HD connection?

Unless you use Sky Box office or other Sky online services you don't need to hook a telephone cable up to ANY Sky set top boxes.
The telephone cable is a means for Sky to monitor your box position and monitor your viewing choices.

If however you do use Sky's online services you "can" connect another line to you main line. Just make sure you connect the correct coloured cables to the correct pins in your sockets.

Further note...

For a Sky+ connection you need to coaxial cables coming off your satelite dish. Incase you didn't already know this.

I want to change my old telephone socket for a new one, i have the BT line with a orange and white wires coming in and i have an extension with six wires coming from the box located in place numbered 1 to...


With BT there are only TWO wires, Tip & Ring... these wires simply go daisy chain from socket to socket, they ALL go on 2 & 5 in the socket. ONLY the FIRST socket should have a capacitor, and be the "Master" socket. The "LINE" also goes onto that 2 & 5 in the Master too.

I have a BT installed ADSL RJ11 socket with two wires - Blue and Blue/White going to pins 4 and 5 respectively for ADSL only. I want to install a new RJ11 module socket but connecting these wires to pins 4...


Hi,

That is the BT side of the wiring and should not be touched .. It sounds like you are trying to install an extension and should use a punchdown tool to extend the existing socket to a new box.

Hope this helps? .. if it does, please leave feedback - if not, please let me know and I'll see what I can do to help!

Dont know how to hook up cat5e cable to a leviton cat5e jack


Those two jacks are telephone jacks (RJ-11) not ethernet (RJ-45). The jack marked telephone is for a phone, and the jack with a rectangle symbol is for the telephone line into the wall.

You need to buy an ethernet PCI card - without one you can not use a cat5e line (which has an RJ45 connection).
