In Response To: Telephone wiring (April)

It sounds like you have the right colors going to the right place. Most jacks are marked and hooking them up isn't too difficult.

It is possible that the black/yellow pair are not connected at the box outside, or were not connected at some place between the box outside and the connection inside. You will need to check to see if the wires are connected outside, and make sure there are no junctions between there and the final connection where there might be a break in the wires.

(Sometimes it is easier to run new wire than to trace down the problem inside of walls and floor/attic spaces...)

Good luck!
