How do I wire cat5 to rj11?
Correspondingly, can you use Cat 5 cable for telephone?
This is made possible because of the wasteful (some may say "spare") wires in cat-5 cable. Cat 5 cable and RJ-45 jacks have eight wires. Ethernet uses two pairs (four wires), one for send and one for receive. Therefore, you can run both ethernet and telephone over the same wire, and still have two wires left over.
One may also ask, what color wires are used for DSL? The back plate of dsl jack has appropriate markings for wire colours (R)- Red; (B)-Black; (Y)-Yellow and (G)-Green. Replace red conductor with yellow and green with black. If you need to strip a wire, use a good quality wire strippers. Try not to "short" the wires when doing this work.
Beside this, what is the color code for telephone wires?

What wires are used in a phone line?
Most telephone wires are one or more twisted pairs of copper wire. The most common type is the 4-strand (2 twisted pair). This consists of red and green wires, which make a pair, and yellow and black wires, which make the other pair. One telephone line needs only 2 wires.
