Rj11 soket to gigabit rj45 router
« on: September 25, 2014, 03:09:32 AM »
Dear Expert,
I got a new router asus n66u, and i am trying to connect it instead of my current Huawei one to have more stability and coverage.
The problem is that the wall socket provided from the isp is rj11 and the router socket is 8pin rj45.
When I checked the old cable from socket to Huawei, i found it is using two middle pins only (looks like telephone cable). And they are reversed in the both ends.

Now when I connect same old cable to asus router, the adsl lamp isn't on, and it failed to detect the Internet connection.

So the case now is that the two pins of the socket are connected to the middle two pins (#4 & 5) out of 8 of the router.

I tried to connect an ethernet standard cable, it fits in the socket and in router for sure, but still it doesn't work.

How could I fix this problem?
Is this setup is applicable? Coz i feel that the asus router is developed by one or two generations than the 4 years old Huawei one.

I point to and quote from DSLR(dslreports.com) -> Forums -> Broadband Tech -> Networking -> Modem/router(not in bridge mode) + router the reply by DSLR user clarknova (#1713475) on 2013-Sep-18 at 2:13 pm

    There are some good reasons to have a modem bridge rather than route. I can't speak for all modems, but generally speaking:

    1. Modems don't have much memory compared to a good router, so open a few sessions from the LAN and watch as connections get dropped, or worse, the modem/router just locks.

    2. Modems tend to lack features compared to a good router. Things like QoS, DHCP reservation, VPN, uPNP, static routes, etc get left out. You can provide your own router behind the modem, as you did, but this can lead to other complications, such as

    3. Double NAT. Most things can be made to work with double NAT, just as it's entirely possible to assemble a jigsaw puzzle while wearing oven mitts. It takes longer and the probability of making a mistake while setting it up or troubleshooting goes up. Simplicity is a good rule to live by when setting up networks.


#2 Advice

a) make sure that all of your computers are behind your RJ-45 WAN port (ASUS n66u) router.

b) and put the modem combo (the Huawei) into bridge mode. As how to get the modem combo into bridge mode, you may need to contact your ISP and get help from them...

rj11 are phone jacks, not network jacks. The Huawei you have sounds like it is a dsl modem/router where as the asus is a router only (Not a dsl modem as well). :wink:

Not an idiot purchase, more like good purchase but failed to understand what you need to do.
