I need help. I'm not really good at networking. I have this telephone line that's connected to my router. It's a 22/4c as it is labeled on the wire. Now my pet hamsters escaped and was chewing off the cover of of my telephone wire and now I got no internet connection. I have a spare cat5e cable, now my question is can I connect a 22/4c wire to a cat5e utp cable?
Splice the wires, making sure that whatever wire in the new piece is connected to a color on one end is connected to the same color on the other end. Leave plenty of slack.
How you splice is up to you -- for short term you can just twist the "stripped" (insulation removed) wires together tightly and wrap with some sort of tape (but such a splice will pull apart easily). For a robust connection you should use a connection block or crimp connectors and anchor the cables on either side so they won't be pulled loose.
(Cat 5 is used in place of phone cable all the time, so the cable is up to the task.)
(PS: With no internet connection, how did you post the above and how will you read this?)
maybe you could just patch up your old cable?
some soldering or a luster terminal could solve your issue for now, until you get this cable replaced.
Just remove some of the isolation and connect the wires by color.
