cat3 (Cat 3) wiring for telephone
Hi all, I've wired my house with cat 3 for telephone, and now I have no idea what to do. The problem is not terminating the wires at the outlet boxes, which I can figure out.
I'm trying to figure out how to take all my cat3 runs and connect them to the actual telephone line.
I bought a 24 port patch panel for cat 3, and can more or less make sense of how to wire the cat 3 to it. I think that you only use 4 wires, the blue, W/blue, Orange, and W/Orange.
But how does that turn into actual telephony? Was I wrong to buy a cat3 patch panel? I tried plugging the phone line into my patch panel, but that does not seem to make it work. I'm tearing my hair out...
Any advice would be much appreciated!
