      Hardwiring RJ11 to NTE-2005

      I want to connect a 10m Adslnation Pro+ RJ11 cable directly to my NTE-2005 faceplate, I'll be keeping the RJ11 on the other end to connect into my router. When I remove the RJ11 connector on the faceplate end and strip the outer cable, how many pairs will I see and which ones will I need to connect to the A+B terminals?

      Look closely at the RJ11 plug and note the colour of the centre 2 connectors. These are the ones you have to connect to the faceplate. They are normally a blue pair. Strictly speaking an RJ11 plug will only have 2 wires connected to the centre terminals any way, as a modem only needs 2 wires. If there are 4 wires connected it is an RJ14, which would be suitable for connecting a telephone.

      By the looks of it the wires are coloured yellow, green, red & black with the green and red wires connected to the centre pins, so I should use these?

      Would that colour combination mean that they are not twisted pair, even though Adslnation state they are?

      I wouldn't think so. You will find out easily enough by stripping the cable back. I notice on my Belkin ADSL cable that there are only 2 wires, green and red, connected to the plug.
