Re: [NTLK] PhoneNet RJ11 cabling

LT over PhoneNet w/ RJ11 can easily be self-made:
1. the connecting cable are always crossed, not straight like normal =
extension cords.
2. a termination resistance is needed only at the ends of the LT =
Basically into each connector of all installed PhonNet adaptors has
something to be plugged into, thus the two end boxes need termination
resistances. Even those terminators can be self-made with a crimping =
tool, a
resistor and a connector of course :-)
