Cisco 877 cabling

Hi all
I've some questions regarding cabling my Cisco 877 to my DSL line. Router gets
not in
sync whereas my fritz.box is in sync within seconds.
Is it possible to connect my Cisco to my splitter or has it to be connected
directly
to my line?
If it's possible what is the pin layout? In this case i have to use another
cable
than the delivered magenta one. The magenta one has two RJ11 plugs whereas my
splitter has a RJ45 jack.
Thanks in advance
Andre

Are you aware of the fact, that the Cisco 877 has a ADSL over POTS modem? That means on nearly all lines in Germany it won't work.

Especially:
876: ADSL over ISDN (ADSL2/ADSL2+ Annex B) 877: ADSL over analog telephone lines (ADSL2/ADSL2+ Annex A and Annex M)
Even if you have only an analog line, the Annex B is used in Germany.
You have to connect the Cisco router to the splitter.
Only the inner two pins are used. If you use the RJ11 cable, it should work as the other pins are unused anyway.

So, i have to use 876 instead of 877 even though i have an analog line?
Thought so.
I was right with that, too.

Yes, i think so. You could check which standard is used by the Fritzbox which works (maybe there's a label or something on it) - i guess it is Annex B (ADSL over ISDN). If so, the Cisco device must be the same type - in your case the 876.

Just an addition, please see

Especially the text related to "Verbreitung":
Germany is the only country where only Annex B is used - regardless if you have an ISDN or analog line.

This is more Deutsche Telekom related not country related. In Croatia we also have Annex B over ISDN or analog.
