 cat5 conversion rj11 to rj45
I have a DSL router that I need to convert for a satelite modem/uplink. Modem has RJ-45 input, router has RJ-11 input and RJ-45 output to network. My RJ-45 are wired T568b(ow/o/gw/b/bw/g/bw/b). Is there a direct wiring that can be done? and what is the pin out to be successful from RJ-45 to RJ-11.

Dear cliff,

Most times a DSL router input (RJ-11) only has 1 pair for the DSL signal and cannot be used for other services. You will need to check with the manufacturer of the router to see if other options are available
