Netgear router to RJ45 Outlet


Prominent Member

i have currently got a wireless Netgear D834G (?) connected to the adsl (rj11), i have recently pulled in a CAT5e cable with a RJ45 outlet.

how do i go about connecting my Netgear router to the RJ45 outlet?

Assuming that you have a telephone service to that outlet one can get patch cables to bridge the two standards. You could also fit an RJ11 faceplate or indeed a BT Style Extension socket. If that latter, assuming that you have brought A & B unfiltered from the Master Socket, your could fit a prefiltered socket with both telephone and ADSL (RJ11) outlets.

just plug the rj11 cable in from the router into the rj45 socket.

I currently have

BT ADSL filter plate -> cat5 patch cable -> RJ45 socket -> cat5e -> RJ45 socket -> RJ11 cable -> router.

RJ11 fits RJ45 without issue.
