Converting existing cat5 telephone lines to dual network/phone
Telephone service is not yet connected; will hook up with Shaw home phone free trial on Dec 17.
I think I can rewire the indoor jacks to be telephone and ethernet (but 10/100mbps only) using the unused pairs in the cat5 lines. However, I don't know how to deal with other end. If the phone box were in a basement, I'd just crimp RJ-45 connectors onto the end and hook it up to a switch. However, since the phone box is outside the house, and there doesn't seem to be an AC outlet nearby.
What does a network-installer normally do?
