    The Connectors

    Here is a brief description of the RJ45 connector. The Rj45 connector looks a lot like the standard
    telephone connector which is called an RJ11. The RJ45 is larger than the RJ11 because the RJ45
    has room for 8 conductors where the RJ11 has room for only conductors. See the photos of the
    two connectors below.  The RJ11 is on the left and the RJ45 is on the right.
