What Is A RJ11 connector?

  cubeladd 14:44 18 Feb 2004

I want to buy a modem that says it uses a RJ11 connection. Is this an ordinary telephone lead, or one with the big connectors on the end, like Cat 5 cables? If it is the big connectors, what would I need to connect it to mt telephone socket?

The link to the modem can be found here click here

Basically an RJ11 connector is an american standard telephone plug. It is smaller than an RJ45. You should be able to but an RJ11 to BT standard connector (UK) in any computer store. As far as I know all internal PCI slot modems use this connector and again, yo should be able to buy a lead with an RJ11 on one end and a BT plug on the other

Just looked at the picture modem via the link you gave. The modem will probably be supplied with a US standard lead, in which case buy an adaptor, or if it doesn't then buy a lead. Should be available at PC World, Maplin or by mail order from any PC store

Most internal modems are supplied with the appropriate RJ11/BT short lead as standard.
