Dear sachin,

This is not possible (see other answer)

RJ-11 is used primasrily for voice and is a 6 pin connector with the center two being the tip and ring of a voice line.

RJ-45 (Realy should be an 8 min modular jack with all pins connectorized in a T568A or T568B wiring scheme. For ethernet at either 10BaseT or 100BaseT, pins 1,2,3 & 6 are active, for 1000BaseT all pins are active.
