wiring a rj11 plug


[link to this post]
 
Hi I'm making a home-made cable for master socket to router. I have a c?rimp tool, 2 rj11 plugs and a length of cw1308 cable.

My question is with the 4 connectors on the plug which colour wire goes in which hole? And presumably they need to be identical on the plugs at each end?

If your CW1308 has four wires..

Then using a twisted i.e.
Blue with white stripe
White with blue stripe

Connect these to the two centre pins. The other pair you simply spread out and connect on the outer pins.

And the same at both ends.

the forum from which that second picture is taken appears to say the image is incorrect

The crossed centre pair should not matter really, but my usual habit on RJ11 leads is to not cross them over at all,
Blue with white stripe goes to the exact same pin number at the other end

So do what I said originally and you should be fine. The note working in that thread is probably down to what looks like the sort of extension cable to avoid these days.

If doing a few crimps regularly then at a basic cable tester is worth considering. A good few times when putting crimps on cables in dark dank corners I have messed up and testers can save time.

Thanks for all the help. What's the best cable for making a lead from router to Openreach socket - and where do I get it?

No idea how much they need but

Is 10 metre of cable 20m and 30m are only fractionally more expensive.

I have something that calls itself cw1308 - but I've no idea if it's really any good - so I was wondering where to get high quality cable of the type Openreach might use. My internet connection is ropey - but BT can find nothing wrong so I'm trying to find an optimal set-up at home.
