The Ethernet stuff doesn't enter into it.
I have the wall jack, DSL modem, fax, and two phones that
are all RJ11.
Since the diagram didn't clarify, let me try it as a word
1. I have a single RJ11 wall jack with both pairs active.
2. One pair (line 1) is for the house phone. The other
pair (line 2) is for the DSL modem, fax, and work phone.
3. The two pairs are brought out from the wall jack (which
is inaccessible behind a bookcase) via a flat 2-pair
4. Everything from that flat cable out needs to be replaced.
I'd like to replace it with modern tech -- like Cat-5e.
5. The diagram showed:
a. flat phone wire to a coupler to a dual-jack fitting.
b. one of the jacks to the house phone.
c. the other jack to another dual-jack fitting via a
crossover cable and another coupler.
d. one of the above jacks from [c] to the filter, then
the fax, then the work phone.
e. the other jack to the DSL modem.
So: Two couplers, two dual-jack 'splitters,' one crossover
cable, one DSL filter, and four bits of Cat-5e straight-through
cable. All with RJ11 fittings.
Any clearer? If not, I'll out together a *real* diagram
rather than ASCII-fart.
