    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 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.
