The problem is that the phone wiring that enters the house is 8 conductor and is hardwired to the phone distribution center. So, I figure I can break into that incoming line and install a couple of cat5 8 conductor female plugs on the two severed ends and can use a cat5 patch cord to connect them if I ever want to go back to the teleco. But, that would only happen if I sell the house.
The question I have is: Can I plug in a normal rj11 modular plug (coming from the modem) into the female rj45 jack that I'll be installing upstream from the distribution center and expect those 4 conductors in the plug to be aligned with the appropriate conductors in the rj45 jack? The phone modem only has rj11 plugs.
BTW-I know I'll only be able to hook up one phone (an expandable wireless system) to this setup. I just want to make my setup easy to undo when I move.
