Cat 5e and rj45 question.

I have cat5e cable that has has rj45 connectors that I use for the telephone. This says it will only allow for one connection at a time but that was talking about data. Do you think it would allow two lines like a typical splitter. If not I need something cheap that would split some lines. Thanks.

  1. Split the line for data or telephone?
  2. It will be split for telephone. It will be coming out of this.
  3. You could actuall run 4 lines on one Cat5e cable. Phone only uses 2 wires so an 8 wire cable would handle 4 lines. Although I think 3 would be max so the other 2 can be used for grounding to prevent interference.
  4. Sturm is right- If your phone line is a true analog signal a cat5e cable can run 4 lines of out cable if they are seperated and terminated.
