Re: phones not working

The filter might be bad. Try another filter. If the wires are cross in the filter it could cause that.

I have 4 wires in a telephone cable (brown, green,orange and blue)and my new phone jack box has 4 wire holders wired black, red blue and yellow.can someone please tell me which colour matches with...

The cable color in the jack box is independent to the jack box. It does not matter what the color of the wires are in the actual cable. The cable needs to have the same colors, in the same order, on both ends to work correctly.

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.

Plz explain me exactly for which purpose RJ-45 cable used ?

RJ -45 is a type of connector used on cat5, cat5e....etc cables to connect networked devices...the RJ stands for registered jack but there is really not much you really need to know about it....a RJ 45 JACK is a little bigger than a telephone jack, you'll notice the female type of input on your computer or laptop and the male end will be on the end of the cable that goes into this jack....hope this helps

I get a dial tone and can use the phone, but it doesn't ring.

Check to make sure your ringer is turned on on your phone. Did you try another phone?

How to make my DSL faster by higher speed?

I would start by looking at the wiring in the house (from plug in the wall to the Demarcation line) make sure that is high quality wire and good connections. Then move to the Phone Co., get them to inspect the local loop wiring for bad connections/wire. Then move to FiOS (fiber optic technology), this will produce some amazing speeds, but you have to work with the phone co. or move to a faster technology such as Frame Relay, ATM, or ISDN, a burst asynchronous comm is your best bet.

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).

Ethernet cords

The cord that plugs into the DSL filter is a phone line and the other end plugs into your DSL modem. Also, every other jack that has a phone or fax or answering machine or caller id box has a DSL filter as well, in between the jack and the device.

Phone jack

If you can see the pins in the jack, are they corroded? Also, is the phone cord new? You'll want to try a different phone jack if you have one available.
