Question about Computers & Internet
Can I use a cat 5 cable to run 2 phone lines and an internet service? Spiltting the wires in a wall plate with rj11 and rj45?
Yes you can but depending on the length of the cable, you may not be able to have a connection speed of more than 100 mbps because of the 48V phone line running along the Ethernet link. You have to understand that this is completely outside the structured networks guidelines... but it may be quite useful if you have a lack of cables. So, do that only if you really cannot add another wire without having to destroy you walls or ceilings.
Use the blue and brown pairs for the phone and green and orange pairs for the Internet. Be sure to untwist the pairs as close as possible to the connect point. For that kind of setup, I recommend you to use a BIXed wall plate such as the Belden AX100344 (2 ports) or AX100352 (4 ports).
For the Ethernet outlet, the orange and green wires would go exactly where they should: 3,4,5 and 6.
If you are using a 2 ports plate (AX100344), the blue wires will go into 1,2 and the brown will go into 3,4 of the second outlet. This will make your phone outlet carry the 2 phones lines. Some business phones actually support receiving the two phone lines like this.
If you are using a 4 ports plate (AX100352), exactly as with the 2-port plate, the blue wires will go into 1,2 of the second outlet. Then, the brown wires will go into 3,4 of the third outlet. This way, the second and third outlets will have regular phone lines in which you will be able to plug any kind of domestic phone. Unfortunately, the forth port will remain unused.
This being said, I have explained only how to connect the wall side since I don't know anything about where and how the other end is terminated.
