I've called SBC and they will be "out to connect my ISDN" in a few days.
I want to be prepared on my end with the wiring so when all is set to go, I
can just plug everything in and speed away. My home is an older house that
has a fairly modern NID outside, but the wiring in my house is a mess and
this is a good time to renew all of it.
My house is wired with the traditional four-wire (red, green, yellow, black)
cable that you typically find used for analog telephone. Is this suitable
for ISDN, or should I make the upgrade to Cat5 UTP? As I said, the wiring
is in shabby shape and should be replaced anyhow. (Would you believe that up
in the attic, I found *splices* that weren't even taped or wire-nutted
I have only two phone jacks in my home and so running new drops will not be
a big deal at all.
Should I run new Cat5 to the jacks? Will I need RG-45 jacks, or will the
ISDN terminal adaptor use R-11?
