View Full Version : AC3 rj11 control cable issue

08/28/2010, 04:56 PM
my rj11 cable seems to have a slight connection problem such that sometimes the signals are not sent consistantly - when i wiggle the end of the cable at the AC3 end i can see the green light starting to blink and things get reset properly. I tried making another cable from cat5 cable and rj11 ends - i just used 2 sets of pairs and such that pair 1 is pin 1/4 and pair 2 is pin 2/3 and mirror the ends on the other end of the cable (so it ends up being a twisted pair cable). I tested the the ends for continuity and checked to make sure each wire was not touching the others but when i plug in the cable it doesnt work. I checked the original cable and it tests the same as the one i made - not sure what the problem is. I need to replace this one and extend another i have to another DC unit - and i havent seen these cables in Neptunes product list. Any ideas?

Standard 4 (or 6) wire phone cables; 4 wire minimum. Home Depot, Lowes, Radio Shack, etc.
