| connection of telephone via rj45 outlets|
|We have a telephone line feeding a modem through an asdl filter the modem works fine and so does a single phone pluged into the filter We wish to punch this voice line to a patch panel to distribute to up to four RJ45 outlets but can't figure out the punchdown sequence |
Can you help?

|Dear John ,|
A single phone line always uses pair #1 - blue pair which should be marked on your patch panel port as such. If I was doing a connection like the one you are doing, I would take five (5) patch panel ports and punch down (without cutting) a continuous pair connecting blue pairs (#1) of all five ports of the patch panel. Then I would plug a cord coming from the DSL filter into one of the ports and take the signal from each of the remaining four ports that you needed.
