Dear mike ,

An RJ-11 is only a 1-pair plug and is typically connected to pins 4 & 5 on the RJ-45 side and pins 3 & 4 on the RJ-11 side.
In most cases you can use a standard 2 conductor telephone cord with RJ-11s on both ends as the RJ-11 centers and aligns this pair in the RJ-45.


Sincerely,
Joseph Golan, RCDD
