Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

The telephone wire got pulled out of my modem.

I can identify where two of the wires go (the blue and the white with a blue strip go in the center of the plug) but replaceing them doesn't give me phone service. I'm sure that one or more other of the wire need to be attached (there sre spaces for four of them), but I don't know which ones or where to attach them. My modem is an Arris, and I'm bundled with Bresnan Communications.

Those should be the only two wires that need to be attached for dial-up (coming from an electrician's son) but for DSL or cable, you should be using an Ethernet cable with the wire colors from the bottom of the connector and left to right with the wire facing down in the order (Orange-White, Orange, Green-White, Blue, Blue-White, Green, Brown-White, Brown).  Hope this helps!

I have problem in the bt incoming socket in my house. it seems to be between the bt test socket and the customer outlet can you supply info on this wired connection super hub works on test socket but


Modern wiring, if you have broadband, only uses two wires.

They consist of the A leg and the B leg. The A leg is connected to connexion 2; the B leg to connexion 5.

Other connexions are concerned with earth (usually for party lines) and ringing (for telephones not on an ADSL line--telephones on ADSL get their ringing current derived from the flter). These other two wires should now be disconnected as they can cause noise.

The wires are in pairs, the blue on white has a pair, which has a little white on blue; the orange on white's pair is white on orange.

It sounds as though the blue pair are the A and B leg, and should be connected to 2 and 5.

Check on another telephone socket (it should be wired exactly the same).

Telecom Issue, when a Netgear router (DG834G) linked to a small server unit, dissconnects the telephone line. The router works fine but no dial tone on the phone side of the micro filter. Any assistan


a POTs (plain old telephone) line should never be connected to a router. that adsl filter does not make a phone line share a data line.
ADSL is a type of internet service supplied over a phone line. think of it as raw (unusable) when its on the phone line. then you use your dsl filter/splitter to feed the raw internet into a special dsl modem and the other port can be used by a standard phone.

you will know a dsl modem when you see it because its uplink or internet port will only be big enough to fit a phone cord into, not an internet cord. these dsl modems then feed usable internet to your routers and all devices on your network. but, like i said before, at this point it is too late for your phone and internet to share the same wire.

OK, thats not entirely true

pin out of RJ45 internet
1=orange/white *
2=orange *
3=green/white *
4=blue
5=blue/white
6=green *
7=brown/white
8=brown

1,2,3+6 are used in a typical network

if your network is typical you can "get fancy" and use 4,5,7+8 for telephone or even put 2 data lines on the same wire (not recommended for long distances). however, this may involve cutting some wires and splicing them together or something.

Hi,my phone wires have came out of the conection box on the wall,please could you tell me weare they go ,i have white wire with blue stripes going to A,blue wire with white stripes going to B, nothing...


In "phone technician talk" the BLUE pair is #1 (pair), the ORANGE pair is #2 and GREEN is #3. This is standard telephone wire in the USA. If you live in the USA and you have one telephone line in your home, the Blue pair (One wire will be blue with a white stripe and the other will be white with a blue stripe) is where the dial tone should be. (This is practice, NOT LAW) Again, if you are in the USA, this wire should terminate in a RJ-11 (common name) box fastened to the wall. Your telephone device should have a modular plug connection (also commonly called a RJ-11) which should fit into the telephone "Jack".

What should you do? If your situation is described above, plug the phone into the jack. If the RJ-11 is damaged, purchase a new wire and install it into the telephone. Strip about 1/4 inch of insulation from the first pair. Put the hand set to your ear, touch the wire to the blue pair on the back of the jack (inside might be a good word here) If you hear dial tone, yo have made the connection. Loosen the screws and attach the wires. If yours does not have screws but rather little slices of metal to attach the wire to, you can purchase the special tool for this at the BIG box store for a buck or two. OR ... you might make the connection with a pair of needle nose pliers. Be aware, if the phone rings while you are doing this, the ringer operates at 60 volts and you will get a tingle. How to avoid that? Do you have a second telephone in the house? Take it off the hook which will make the line busy so it cannot ring.

If you are not in the USA, similar principles apply, touch the wires together until you get a dial tone, make the connection using what ever device is approved in your country. Once you find the dial tone, take the second phone off the hook so you will not get shocked if the phone rings.

I hope this response is what you expected ... thanks for your inquiry @ FixYa.com

I have a cat5e wall plate(tph552) a cat5e wire4 colors don't match and 4 colors do ( brown,orange,blue,green,) are ok then wire has 4 that are white with (brown,orange,green,blue,)stripe. and wall plate...


The wires/colors in a category 5e cable run in pairs. They should be tightly twisted together, mostly white with a blue tracer. mostly blue with a white tracer- mostly white with an orange tracer- mostly orange with a white tracer, mostly white with a green tracer- mostly green with a whte tracer, and mostly white with a brown tracer- mostly brown with a white tracer.The jack you have sounds like a standard telephone or cat. 3 jack. If the jack is being used for a standard telephone line, you'll need to connect one of the wire pairs(usually the white/blue pair) to the green and red terminals on the jack.Make sure that the same pair is also terminated at the main telephone junction.

How do i connect a telephone wire to an rj11 plug. What is the order of the wires for us telephones.


dialtone should go on the green and red wires of the jack for 1 line service, yellow and black for a second line.
Depending on the type of wiring that your dealing with the color code can change. if your wiring has white wires with little dashes of color on them then the code is:
green = white/blue (mostly white with blue dashes)
red = blue/white (mostly blue with white dashes)
black= white/orange (mostly white with orange dashes)
yellow= orange/white (mostly orange with white dashes)

My phone line comes through a cable modem. how do i connect


well no promises but this may work

items you will need

2 coaxial cables

3 way coaxial splitter

1 old phone cable you can sacrifice

soldering iron (optional)

solder (optional)

steps,

1
take a coaxial cable and cut on of the ends off, throw the severed end away and strip the insulation of the coaxial cable (only strip about 3 inches of it away.

2
seperate the coper (or sliver wire) from the wire center wire and twist toeghter to make a neat wire

3
strip some of the insulation away from the white center post revealing the coper wire inside

4
cut end off phone cable and take about 4 inched of insulation away

5
connect the green wire of the phone cable to the copper outter most wire of the coaxial cable and tape it so that there isnt any of the outer most wire showing

6
connect the white wire to the center wire of the coaxial cable and tape so that there isnt any wire showing

7
connect the coaxial/phone cable you just made to the 3 way splitter

8
connect the coaxial line that comes from your house to the splitter

9
connect the other coaxail cable to the last available port on the splitter

10
connect the non-modified coxial line to your modem/router

11
connect the phone cable to the fax

this might work, no promises, i havent tried it, but it might work and is worth a try
