| rj45 for dsl|
|For a new building, we are using cat 5 cable for DSL. What kind of jack should I purchase to wire to and then connect my dsl cable? Is it a rj45, cat 3?|

DSL is designed to work over telephone lines, so CAT3 would do just fine. Also, both RJ45 and RJ11 would do because most likely you will be connecting your DSL modem using RJ11-to-RJ11 cord that comes with it. RJ11 fits right into RJ45, and pair number 1, which you need connects in all versions of RJ45 pin layouts (USOC, T568A, T568B).
