Hello,

Can some one throw out the original post on this issue, please? I mustuv got
a bit overzealous on cleaning up after a trip, and missed it. Thanks.


The OP wanted to know if it would help to run Cat5 between the wall
jack and his/her modem (inside wiring being Cat5 also). Not specified,
or relevent IMO, whether it was a dial-up or DSL modem.

Default CAT-5 / Phone / Modem Cable Questions

Thanks.
Since it is just a modem connection then CAT5 is not needed. Now, if the OP
has the ability to make a phone line with decent connectors and a crimper,
then making a line out of CAT5 certainly won't hurt but is not necessary.
Even though the CAT5 is in the house, you still have the joe schmoe copper
running from the phone company to the house, so the quality of the line is
already at that level.

Now, the DSL people are shipping pretty fancy phone cables with the DSL
modems, so if the OP has that already, that is the best they will do.
