| ADSL cable - Crossed or Straight Through?|
|<!=question>Hi, I have 2 ADSL modems in my house both using rj11 cables to connect to their filters. They both work fine but one has a cable wired with pins 2 and 3 crossed, while the other has pins 2 and 3 wired straight through! Is it manufacturer specific?<!=question_end>|

I have no experience in this to tell you if it is manufacturer specific but I suspect the line is not required to be polarized, similar to newer touch-tone type telephones vs. the older ones which would not work if the line was reversed.
