Modem Cable Help Please
I am trying to modify a Standard Modem cable to fit a connexant modem.
Anyone got any idea of what wire goes where
Any help welcome.

Are you talking about taking a standard phone cable and making it a ethernet cable? Because I dont think that is possible since CAT 5 cable is 4 pair of wires and the phone cable is 2 pair....

I have removed your duplicate post and am moving this into General Chit Chat.

I hope this helps .
Its an internal modem (Conexant)
I don't have the cable from modem to telephone plug.
I have the cable from a us robotics sportster which I have in my hand and have butchered.
There are 4 cables inside.
I need to know which cables to pair off together to make the robotics modem cable suit the conexant modem. I take it it has some twist.

It should not be necessary to modify that cable to fit that modem.
All internal modems, I believe, take a standard telephone cable.
Get a new cable (they're very cheap), and plug it in.
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
