Thanks guys, GREAT help! Might be a stupid question (but I havent worked with cabling long!!) You say, for example, pri uses pins 1 2 4 5 but how does that tally up with the other end of the cable. Im used to seeing diagrams with links from a standard w/o,o,wg,b,wb,g,wb,b on one side to whatever on the pri end... how do i know what colours to use for the pins you mention?!?!

Sorry if that sound daft!

Depending on what standard you use if it was 568b The pins 1 and 2 are the W/or, Or and 4,5 are w/Bl, Bl.

In 568b
4 Bl

Yes. That is 568B and 568A is the same but the orange is 3 and 6 and the green is 1 and 2.

The newer ISDN/BRI (T type interface I believe)is a two wire setup just like a phone connections it uses the white/blue blue/white. The older stuff (U type interface)was a four wire setup that used the (on a RJ-48 jack) the white/orange Orange/white white/green green white pairs.

what i need confirming is that if i made up a bri cable using all wires then it would just be a sraight through cable wouldnt it?? no wires crossed over?!?!? 3456 to wg, b, wb, g same as straight through! as opposed to pri which does a cross over as des a crossover cable obviously....

You should be able to use a station or patch cable for this, as it is a straight through connection.
