RJ11 plug (Telephone,DSL)


#1

PTCL cable coming into my house has only two wires, but Telephone cable i use to connect phone (with RJ11 Plug) has 4 wires. Which 2 of these 4 wires are not necessary for using DSL or Phone ?

Also is there any issue of polarity or can i just connect the two wire (PTCL cable) to 2 wire of RJ11 Plug that carry signal and leave other two wires of RJ11 unconnected ?

One last thing, is it safe to connect PTCL cable directly to DSL Router or Telephone using RJ11 Plug ?

well every one get 2 wires from pole,connect the telephone cable that you are using which got 4 wires,but only two of them are needed,you can connect it to ptcl’s wire and check it with your telephone set if tone works fine then everything is fine
