Thread: Help needed with RJ45 to phone socket wiring

    Well, I have never seen an adapter wired like that before !!!!

    Pin 1 on the BT plug is nearest the tag so going by your text I am guessing at...

    1 Yellow
    2 Red
    3 Brown
    4 Blue
    5 Green
    6 Black

    Ringing should be on BT3 which going by above is BROWN which you say goes to RJ45/8

    RJ45 plug end:

    Pin 1: Grey - cut off/not used at BT socket end
    Pin 2: Orange - cut off/not used at BT socket end
    Pin 3: Black
    Pin 4: Red
    Pin 5: Green
    Pin 6: Yellow
    Pin 7: Blue
    Pin 8: Brown

    Try this with the cable from the BT NTE5

    4 BLUE/White (as it should be)
    5 WHITE/Blue (as it should be)
    8 ORANGE/White
    7 WHITE/Orange

    and see how you get on

    Thanks a lot Keith, I'll give that a try.

    Shouldn't have to go to these lengths though - not a particularly useful adapter wired the way it is! A mild PITA but a good learning experience nevertheless.

    Will try a different adapter I think for any further phone outlets.

    You've been most helpful Keith so I extend a very sincere thanks to you for all your support.
