Does anyone know if it possible to purchase a RJ11 to RJ45 adapter?
For those who are curious why I need one, this is why.
I have a wireless router that I need to install in an area on the 3rd floor of a building. The actual ADSL line is situated on the ground floor. From ground floor I have a patch panel with CAT5e cables terminating to the 3rd floor. I want to connect ADSL line to RJ11-RJ45 convertor to Patchpanel. I will then connect a Cat5e cable to the 3rd floor data port and use a RJ11-RJ45 convertor to connect the cable to the wireless router.
I believe this should work, please let me know if anyone has any doubts and whether a rj11 to rj45 adapater actually exists.
Hi, if I read this right, you want an RJ11 (small) connection into an RJ45 (data/telephone) connection. Yes there are ways you can do this. The easiest is to go to any computer shop. The RJ11 lead is the "telephone" connection at the back of a PC. So, you can usually get a connection that will go from there to the Phone socket. In addition, you can get "converters that will do the same job, and they don't cost much. If you can't find them in the computer shop, go on line and you should be able to get them quite easily.
