Re: Ethernet cable

Why?What exactly are you attempting to do? Your modem’s Ethernet ports and the phone line don’t mix.

Re: Ethernet cable

Ethernet uses an 8-wire (4-pair) connector. Phones use 6-wire (3-pair) connectors. They are deliberately not compatible. You cannot use phone lines as Ethernet ports because the wiring is usually not the correct type.
