Phone Jack Wiring

Posted by Jedziemy (My Page) on

How do I properly connect these? All web sites I've seen talk about white with green/blue/or orange stripes. These wires have a single stripe running the length of the cable. One white with a single blue stripe, one white with single green, and one white with single orange. The rest are solid colors. Anyone?

(In the second picture, you can see the blue stripe)

RE: Phone Jack Wiring

It appears that you have 3-pair wiring coming to the wall jack. Assuming it was wired correctly at the NID (network interface device) - where the telephone company connection terminates at your residence - the pair sequence is:

1st pair - Blue/White w/tracer --- 2nd pair - Orange/White w/tracer --- 3rd pair - Green/White w/tracer.

The wiring for your jack would be as follows:

Blue/White - to - Red/Green (ring/tip) respectively.

Orange/White - to - Yellow/Black (ring/tip) respectively.

Green/White - Not used

However, you MUST check the other end to confirm it was wired correctly at the NID.

RE: Phone Jack Wiring

sometimes it is blue with a white strip and white with a blues stripe. Sometimes it is solid blue and white with a blue stripe.

so it would be Blue and White/Blue, Orange and White/Orange and Green and White/Green.
