Put the splitter on your RJ11 entrance so that you can plug in your modem AND one adapter cable (RJ11 to RJ45).
Depending on what the wiring setup is, this step may be unnecessary. If the office already has a phone line, then a standard phone cable between ANY phone jack in the house can be used presuming they are all interconnected.
You misunderstood me, but only because I misread Malletto.
I misread as in I thought he said he plugs his modem into the phone line (DSL). So the splitter would allow to plug the modem into the phone line and plug another line for the office.
So that step is not even applicable.
Also the coupler isn't needed, I thought he had a MALE RJ45 cable in his distribution panel to feed the office.
If it's a female RJ45 cable, he doesn't need the coupler.
Is it standard to terminate RJ45 cables in the distribution panel with female ends? In my head, they should terminate with male ends.
