Phone to Cat5e cabling - How do I wire the wall plate

Trying to wire up house myself. Have cat5e cable to each room - 2 runs in each room - 1 for data, 1 for voice.

How do I wire the phone ports as phone cable has less wires?

Thanks

    Thanks nhoelfox, I ended up wiring it as per data but only joined the termination points using the striped orange/orange. This allows each port to be used sharing the same line.



    If I want to exploit the (7) lines later I can presumably put in a patch panel / small switch??



    Thanks again - its nice to get a response.

Wire your phone box using your Cat5 cable, use 4 wires instead of 8 wires of Cat5.

I need networking cables, which cables are best for use.


CAT6 cables & jacks are better than CAT5E.
CAT5E cables & jacks are better than CAT5.
CAT5 cables & jacks are better than CAT3.
CAT3 cables have problems going faster than 10Mbit/second.
CAT5 cables support 100Mbit/second, and seem to work with 1000Mbit/second ("gigabit") devices.

Rewiring a house putting in a net work for the future . what cable cat5e ,cat5e screened , cat6 , cat6 screened . would cat5e screened be better than cat6 unscreened ? cables away from mains ,


I'm guessing when you say screened and unscreened you mean shielded or unshielded. Shielded wire is used when there is a higher possibility of electrical or RF interference. In a typical household those type of interferences are uncommon. As far as the Cat.5e or Cat. 6 decision, Cat 5e is tested to 150 Mhz. compared to a 250 Mhz. rating on Cat. 6 therefore with future speeds in mind I'd go with the Category 6.

I need to wire a network cable into a wall plate purchased at home depot. the plug is not rj45 but a block with 8 screws and different colored wires. the problem is the colors don't match cat5e wire.any...


I have tried this, and my suggestion is to go back and get the proper wall jack. How much are headaches worth to you? If they are worth more than the wall plate, just **** it up and get the correct one.

Providing modem output to house addition


Looking at the image in the link below, your computer only uses the orange pair and the green pair. You could break out the blue pair and brown pair and actually run 2 separate phone lines through this cat5e cable also. For reference this image is shown with the end of the plug facing you. The only issue I see with this is to make sure you know which 4 wires you are using in the 12 wire cable and connect the orange pair and green pair to the same wires on both ends. (Do the same with the blue pair and brown pair for your phone line.) If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

Cat5e jack by leviton has eight slots, but my cat5 cable only has 4 wires in it. I punched the wires down on the back four connectors. As long as I do the same on my ends, this should work right? Please...


Cat5 has eight wires, anything less is for telephone. Your cabe is for telephone if it has 4 wires. Either return the cable and get 8-wire cat5 or go to another store for your cat5 wire.

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).

How to run cat5 for phone wire


You could, but common practice is to make all the runs "home runs". Pick a closet or basement or some centrally located place and run all the cables to that spot. Then you can use a $10 block from Blowes Home Dumpo Maynards and create a distribution point.
