| || || | DSL lead pinout
'cuse me for butting in, but;
Are all router modems using the same dsl lead (pins) and if so which carry
the 2 wire signal. My stock lead has all 6 wires terminated both end so I
can't see. I want to break in to the dsl feed by building an rj11 socket to
plug filter and plug this into my router.

We are a business located on a business park. Our 1MB Star.net connection is

Our previous kilostream link (128kb/s) was much quicker but much more expensive.
