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.

GE Network & Coax Wall Plate has 8 wires of solid colors. My CAT5E cable has 8 wires, only 4 of which are solid and correspond to 4 of the solid colors on the wall plate. The other 4 wires on the CAT5E...


Hello

Your cat5 will make up 4 pair. org/org/wht being one pair and so on.

So as long as you keep them in pairs you will be ok.

Meaning. Pair one from cat5 org and org/wht to wall plate wht and brn.This would be one complete pair.So the wall plate colors are different from cat5 but as long as you stay in pairs and go from left to right on your conections you should be ok.

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.

Wiring on a RCA RJ-45 wall jack


the RJ45 wallplate is not meant for ethernet. It's an 8P8C connector for a phone. Will it work as a network jack? Maybe. I wouldn't use it, but if you really want to try, wire it thusly:

1 Blue --- Orange/White
2 Orange --- Orange
3 Black --- Green/White
4 Red --- Blue
5 Green --- Blue/White
6 Yellow --- Green
7 Brown --- Brown/White
8 White --- Brown

I'd still recommend a CAT5 wallplate with a CAT5 jack.

Connection between harmon receiver and A-bus in wall speakers...


There is a CAT5/RJ45 A-Bus interface on the back of the HK AVR 435. That needs to connect to your A-BUS "hub". HK has two hub products: ABH-4000 and ABH-4 (older). Then CAT5 cable can be run from this hub to Wall-installed room-specific controls. HK has the AB-2 product, but any ABus compatible wall control will work. From the wall control, you wire regular audio cable to the speakers. So, some of the questions/issues to solve are: where do the existing wires go that are connected to the in-wall speakers? Typically that location is where to place your in-wall volume and source controls. Then the CAT5 gets wired from those controls back to the hub. And all that's required is a single CAT5 from the AVR to the Hub.

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.

3 netopia 2247 routers daisychained


How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house?   CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it.  You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers. 
Also, who has the actual internet connection?  I'm assuming House 2 does.  One big problem is a router is your Gateway address.  And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway".  And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches.  Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3.  That would be the best way to handle this problem.  It would also end your connectivity problems.
Cheers!

HOW DO I CORRECTLY WIRE THIS WALLPLATE TO MY CAT5e CABLE AND PHONE LINE. WHAT COLOR BELONGS TO WHAT?


http://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/ethernetcables.html

this link covers proper pinout for cat 5 cabling. (RJ45). A phone line is RJ11. You can run ethernet cable through a wall and terminate it at a wall plate designed for ethernet (not a standard phone wall plate). You can't use the RJ11 cable currently in the walls for ethernet.
