Daughter who lives at some distance wishes to move her existing router modem which is currently plugged into a BT Mk3 filter fitted to a BT NTE5 master socket. Her house is networked with two RJ45 sockets adjacent to the NTE5. What she would like to do is move the router/modem to the same location as her switch. Whilst I appreciate that this is probably best done by fitting a short patch cable to the IDC terminals on the Mk3 faceplate and plugging this in to an adjacent network socket she doesn't have access to a krone tool so using a pair of premade patch cable is probably the simplest for her or at least in the short term.
So, my question is what patch cables should she get for each end. At the NTE5 end should this be a BT to RJ45 cable or an RJ11 to RJ45 or are they the same? Similarly what sort of patch cable should she use at the patch panel to connect to the relocated router/modem? An RJ45 to RJ11 or an RJ45 to BT?
Edit: Spelling correction.
