      Ok, I think I understand ok now. The BT master socket is located in the kitchen and the patch panel will be located directly above in a cupboard in the space room. So to make my life a little bit simplier, but I plan to buy a 12 port mini patch panel just for the phone system. So would this work:

      1). Use BT to RJ45 patch cable to connect the BT master socket to a RJ45 faceplate located next to the BT master socket in the kitchen.
      2). Cat5e run from the kitchen faceplate to the last of the mini patch panel.
      3). Cat5e runs to each of the rooms where I want the phone extention. For example (PP = patch panel port) (PP1 run to front room, PP2 run to bedroom 1, PP3 run to bedroom 2 etc)
      4). Terminate those run into RG45 faceplate.
      5). Use RJ45 to BT converter, which connects the face plate to the phone.


      Yes, if the BT socket is next to one of the new RJ45 outlets just use a short (we have 0.5m available) BT to RJ45 patch lead to patch the phone line into the RJ45 outlet which basically gets the line back to the panel. ALL of your CAT5 cables will terminate to the patch panel at one end & RJ45 outlets at the other.

      Outlet for data-patch lead from panel port to switch.

      Outlet for voice-patch lead from the port you patched the line to BACK into the panel port you actually want the line on.

      If you need multiple phone extensions use the converter I linked to. At the phone end use the other converter I linked to to convert the RJ45 back to BT. If you ever want to swap a phone extension to data or vice versa it's easy. Simple re-patch at the panel end. No running two sets of cabling & no hassle!
