THE IMPOSSIBLE IS POSSIBLE...STEP INSIDE.

Postby JpCT » Thu Jul 22, 2004 7:56 pm

Refer to thread:
viewtopic.php?t=5559

It has been done. my home network is up and running and is beautiful.

So how was my house wired?

-Category 5 cable run to each phone jack (piggy backed in line to eachother) then sent straight out to the box as one line.

-Used only 4 necessary wires to each jack.


How Did i get a network to run along with cable internet connection being shared?

-Take the wall plate off and dismantle the jack.
- Send the dial tone to 1 pair of specific wires (pick a color and use it for every jack you plan to convert...i used brown/brown with white.)
- Wire in a new category 5 jack connector. WITHOUT wiring the pair you designated as dial tone wires.
-Jump the pair you didn't use.
-Plug in your category 5 wire....BINGO.


Took some time to figure it out, had a buddy of mine who works for a communications company bring his tools and we messed around. It's awesome now. Definetly surprised....by the way, my buddy says you are all stupid and obviously haven't called him to come to your house to help ya out haha. I said nah they're not stupid, just undereducated about the subject :D

You said it couldn't be done. But it's done. Telephone, cable internet and a home network shared on the very same physical line. Beat that.

#1, WE DONT CARE, how will that help me out
#2, beat that? how about just wiring your house for ethernet instead? more experience doing that, and companies rather have dedicated wires than merging phone jacks and ethernet jacks using the same cable
#3, YOU DIDNT GIVE ME CREDIT. you were about to "give up" too

jesus man take it easy i'm just screwing around. I'm excited i finally got it working but that's not cool for you, you have to act like a little teennager and jump all over me about it instead of acting mature and being happy for me and surprised you learned something new.

I figured i'd post the information to help you guys out. since you all did not know this could work. sorry next time because rob says so, i'll leave you in the dark and you'll never know new things.

no need to take offense to it, i don't even know why you did, because i didn't say "Rod tried to help me but he said it wouldn't work so i found another way"? well there ya go, there's your credit.

companies don't care how it gets done, it's not their issue, it's the home owners.

learn to take it easy kid, and just because someone proved you wrong and/or didn't follow your advice and still came out okay, doesn't mean you need to jump on them.

Yeah I've done that before. Wired a whole house with wifi points through.

Too bad I wasn't around when you were trying to figure that out.

"WE" ?? What's this "WE" thing you speak of. I for one, do care. I was very interested to find out if it could be done, and obviously it can.

You don't need to get all crazy about shit, just because you're having a bad day.

Take the sand out of your pussy...and calm the fuck down.
