| DSL cabling|
|I recently purchased a DSL router that has a CAT5 (RJ45) DSL input instead on the RJ11 phone jack. I believe that the white/blue and the blue/white wires are used on the CAT 5 connector, but I don't know which of the phone wires (black, red, green, yellow) use to hook up to the CAT 5.|

In four conductor phone cable red and green are forming pair number 1, which will come on blue-white/blue pair in CAT5 cable.
Are you sure your DSL modem has TWO RJ45 jacks? One jack should be for a phone line input (and that is RJ11 on all devices I saw so far) and another one is Ethernet output (RJ45)
What is the model of your device? It will be interesting to check with the manufacturer.
