"Can I extend my telephone line with a Cat5 cable?"

Yes!

Cat5 cable is better than normal telephone cables or ISDN cables.

Leave the NTBA where it is and connect the Fritz to the S0 bus via the Cat5.

"Yes! Cat5 cable is better than normal telephone cables or ISDN cables. Do not bother..."

Do you mean the SO-Bus of the converter or the NTBA?

directly to the ntba, since the fritzcard is an isdn terminal.

to the converter you could connect a “not” isdn suitable fax or telephone.
by the way, when using a cat5 cable, only 4 lines are actually required,
i.e. you can put your isdn line on the cat5 that leads to your computer in the basement.
Put a double socket in the basement, you use one connection of the socket to connect the computer, the other connection you use to connect your isdn card in the attic with the ntba.

you just have to pay attention to which cable pairs you use for which task. and wire the socket accordingly.

have fun

Addendum to: "Can I extend my telephone line with a Cat5 cable?"

First of all, thanks for the suggestions.
Of course, I have put all of this in too cumbersome terms. What I actually want is to move the telephone socket from the ground floor to the top floor using the CAT5 cable.
I would then connect splitter, NTBA, DSL modem, router, ISDN converter to the top of the socket and then below I have 1 Cat5, this time from above, that is, coming from the router, for the EC PC.
I once fired (doesn't sound as trite as goo ..), at first I thought you meant a double telephone socket, but there are RJ45 double sockets, you mean, I assume.
Thank you for your suggestion, in principle good, but: One CAT5 cable is for the ground floor router / attic PC, the other for the EG-NTBA / DG-ISDN converter, i.e. for the telephones and faxes.

For your solution I would need a third Cat5 cable, if I do not want to deactivate the telephones for using the Fritz, or am I wrong?

hi dannyCoburg

unfortunately you misunderstood me or I put it wrong :-)

one after the other, yes you can move a telephone socket via cat5 cable into one room in the other. and then connect all the stuff. however, a telephone line must then be laid from your roof connection to any other telephones in the house.


for my suggestion you need a total of "1" cat5 cable.

let's take your "A CAT5 cable is for the ground floor router / attic PC" of this cable are occupied in all 4 cores.
for isdn you need 2 more wires, i.e. 2 wires are still unused in your cat5 cable.

My suggestion is now that you connect to both ends of the "A CAT5 cable is for the first floor router / attic PC" cable. a cat5 NETWORK SOCKET sets. ATTENTION: NO TELEPHONE SOCKET.

the network socket is fully wired, a telephone socket looks similar, but has only 4 contacts.

On one connection in the box you make your pc / router connection, on the other connection is your NTBA / ISDN converter line

so 1 cat5 cable for everything. the thing would only then no longer work if you wanted to set up a gb / network (with gb network, all 8 wires of the network cable are used). however, that would not work with a normal cat5 cable anyway.

if you still have questions about this you have no problem

Thank you g.k.
I still don't quite get it.
Why do I need the network socket for 1 Cat5 cable and do everything via a Cat5 cable when I already have two cables?
I currently have the PC on one Cat5 and the converter on the other Cat5. According to Telekom, I am not allowed to remove the NTBA so far from the splitter.
What do I do with the splinter? Where is he going? I may "pretend" a little, but there are things that I understand much faster.
As I found out today, however, the company with which I exchange data should start from summer d. J. be so far that the exchange works without the Fritzcard. Now I think, if necessary, I will carry the PC, albeit the desktop, to the ground floor once a week and then attach it to the NTBA. It's not that long until summer, basically ... (time is racing).
Also from Franconia? Under-? Medium? Waiter? According to the language, M. Nickles seems to me to come from Franconia. I posted it once, nobody apparently knows or it's a well-kept secret, just wondering why.
Greetings Danny, Ofr., And I like it.

Sorry I looked at my outgoing posting again. Sorry for my mistake: In the penultimate sentence it must read correctly "... and above the counterpart in the SPLITTER (instead of NTBA). And the sentence before that I also write that NTBA and splitter should stay together!

hi dannycoburg

well, let's leave it with 2 lines.
you leave all the hardware in the basement, so all the telkom stuff.

if I understand you correctly, then you just want to move the s0 bus from the ntba to the top floor to connect your fritzcard there. that's right, is it not?

the cat5 cable on which your a / b converter hangs at the moment still has free cable pairs.

put a rj45 "network socket" at the end of the cable, because all the connections you need can be accommodated in it.

then you look for 2 cable pairs for the isdn assignment. then you occupy e.g. the left connection with isdn.
pin 3,4,5,6, with the color of your choice, don't forget to write it down or remember it carefully.
You occupy the right connection with the other free cable pairs, remember well again.

you play the same game in the basement.

Now you connect the left side of the socket in the basement with one isdn connection on the ntba and the right socket with the other connection.

the connecting cables for the network socket / ntba can be tinkered with by an electrician of your choice (cheaper), flat cable, an isdn crimp plug at the front and back and you're done.

In the attic you now have a 1: 1 extension of your isdn connection.
Connect the fritzcard on one side of the box in the attic and your a / b converter on the other.

oh yes, upper franconia, near kulmbach. so not far from coburg.

Thank you g.k. - now I get it. I almost feared that I would have to cut off the western plug!

Greetings to Melkendorf or Mainleus, Neudrossenfeld or Thurnau or anywhere in between. I know every little town there, because I work on construction sites in Ofr.
Franconian Switzerland is awesome!

In the past I was even registered with a provider from Kulmbach (E.C.Baumann).

hi danny

no no, you don't need to cut anything with the solution, above all you don't need to tinker with the cables from the telekom.

the boys are not kidding :-)

Another advantage is if there is a fault in your cabling, then this is cushioned by the ntba, it just doesn't work.

if, on the other hand, you tamper with the junction box, and stupidly short-circuits it. it switches off the connection.
Then all you have to do is make a very unpleasant phone call that also requires you to explain what you've been up to.

if you know where the "inside" is, then you know where i live.

have fun tinkering.

Hi, g.k., I think you come from Marktleugast. I know very well. When I come from KU to Untersteinach left in the direction of MÜB, I think I will first come to a quarry. Quite a lot of serpentines and in Markleugast it goes steeply down the mountain again. At the top left of the mountain is a school. In the curve below, I always shopped in the Edekaladen, but unfortunately it is closed now, I believe (the new supermarkets up on the mountain!). The landscape between Marktleugast and Presseck is awesome, wildly romantic with the mountain streams etc. etc. But you often only know that when you come there from an industrial area.
Greetings Danny

hi danny

direct hit. that's where I live.
the area is really not bad, and it is just like you say, you only really appreciate it when you know the other.
i'm not a native of marktleugast (born and grew up near frankfurt / main) i also found it more by chance. but now I don't want to leave here anymore.

and? is the new connection already running?

If I'm honest, it's still fine. It's just a bit more complicated than I thought, because I don't have a knack for that. And then let the electrician come, what that costs again ...

Since I only have to do the data exchange twice a week and that takes maybe 20 minutes, I have now considered the following: The RJ45 plug, which is in the network card of the DG-PC, is briefly plugged into the Fritzcard of this PC and in the EC the other end briefly from the router and into the NTBA. Then I do my swap and then switch again. That should work. From summer the company will switch over anyway so that I can do the exchange via DSL.

I admit that this solution is not very elegant, but I don't want to spend as much effort as possible on a temporary matter. Regardless of this, I am very grateful for the solutions, as I now know how it works in principle or that it works.

So again, thank you very much for the exact description and patience.

You're right not to want to leave there anymore, and the older you get, the more happy you are that you can be in absolute nature in a few minutes, that is incomparable, the ideal balance to the computer.

See you, Danny
