I currently have a CAT6 cable running from my hub to jack behind my tv. Actually, there is an 8-pin jack by the hub and then one by the tv with the CAT6 cable connecting the two. This allows me to have an Ethernet connection behind the tv.
I am only using 100MBit and do not have a need to do Gigabit Ethernet in this configuration.
What I would like to do is use the existing cable and have a phone line run out behind the tv. I do not believe all 8 wires are used in100 MBit Ethernet.
If this is technically doable, is there a "splitter" of shorts where I can take the two 8-pin jacks I already have and split it into a phone jack and then an Ethernet jack? Does Radio Shack or anyone sell something like this?
I am willing to rewire it myself if needed. Any pointers or web sites that discuss this? I searched around and found some things that might help but nothing that directly describes how to do what I want to do.
Thanks in advance.
