 Connecting to BT Sockets
I have a building with Cat5e intrnal wiring (terminating in a patch panel) and a standard Analogue line (standard termination box) installed by BT. I'm planning to connect this line using the Cat5 network. I thought I could make a lead and hard wire it into the BT socket, patch it through with standard CAt5 leads and then use a BT to RJ45 cobverter I have to 're-present' the BT style socket at the other end. I need to know the 'pin outs' of the lead that will be hard-wired into the BT socket. Does anyone have the answer ?

Dear Stuart ,

The BT socket is not part the complient components for Category 5e performances. I think the best is make the link category 5e complient using the appropriate jacks (sockets) and then purchase you convertors localy (if you are in England, check your nearest Radio Spares store for a convertor
