 RJ11 to com 2
What wires from a RJ11 ( Blue,Black,Red,Green,Yellow,White) connect to the COM 2 port on a PC to communicate to a weatherlink station?
 Answer by Joseph Golan posted 10 Apr 2005
Dear ian,

An RJ-11 is a telecommunications standard for a residential type telecommunications plug and COM2 is a PC standard for a serial port. You are mixing apples and oranges here but I don't think you want fruit salad.
If your weatherlink does utilize what looks like an RJ-11, you will need to consult the manufacturer user guides or contact them for connection information. I did try and search the web for you under "weatherlink" but the results were to numerous to investigate without a manufacturer name or model number.
