    [SOLVED] RJ45 and ADSL


    Hi,

    got a small hardware near question that would take me long time to figure out. Maybe someone of you can help me save some time.

    I've got an ADSL cable here with 2 wires that comes out of the wall with a 6 pin RJ25 where the two wires are at pin 3 and 4 (right in the middle). My router is a Asus WL500G-P with an Ethernet WAN Port (8 Pins - RJ45 female). I've got OpenWRT running on that one and it can as such make up PPP connections as long as I use the providers router as bypass device (plug RJ45 from my router to provider router and RJ25 into provider router adsl port).

    Is there a way to patch the 2 wire cable to a 8 pin RJ45 such that my OpenWRT and i dont have to bypass through the modem?

    Basically my idea is to patch the two wire cable mapping the two pins somehow to a 45 jack:

    3 -> [1..8]
    4 -> [1..8]

    If something is not clear, feel free to ask.

    EDIT: got the answer right there, but for curiousness, how do i need to pin it?

    Greetings,
    Dominik
