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.

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 am trying to connect a second phone line to a box, I have the right wire for the first line( have dialling tone) What colours are the wires for the second line, which one goes into A and which one goes...


If you have tone on line one you should be using colors red/green. The 2nd line will be using colors black/yellow. Make sure that the cable is going back to the telephone company's bridge (the box outside the house).

If you are using Cat5 then the wire colors will be white/blue-blue/white the 2nd line will be white/orange-orange/white.

I know this sound a little confusing but the attached tables and picture should help.

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.

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.

Require assistance in connecting cable to a single CAT5e configured wallplate


Well, what can I say? you only need a cat5 ethernet cable with rj45 plugs and plug one side in your computer and the other in the wallplate, beside that with this information I can not say anything else.

good luck

Cat 5 wiring issue


I know this is an old thread, but for the sake of helping someone else in the future, I just got off the phone with the Phillips Help Desk and this is the way they told me to wire it up the RJ-11 & RJ-45 combo jack I bought (PH60037):
  • RJ-45
  • Jack colors - CAT 5e
  • Blue - white/orange
  • Orange - Orange
  • Black - white/green
  • Red - Blue
  • Green - white/blue
  • Yellow - Green
  • Brown - white/brown
  • White - brown


  • RJ-11
  • White - white/green
  • Black - white/orange
  • Red - blue
  • Green - blue/white
  • Yellow - orange
  • Blue - green
He said it was the standard configuration used by the phone companies for some time.
Phillips Help Desk # for phones/PCs (800-233-8412)
Hope that helps someone else down the road.
