HI, the power supply that you connect the telephone line to is a RJ45 but only a RJ11 was supplied? does the RJ11 worrk in the RJ45 socket? thanks

Asked by: pringle
The RJ11 cable should connect to the included APM103 ADSL2+ Power Modem, there should be a socket next to the had wired output cable and beneath the reset button. The attached fly-lead from this modem will connect to the 'Internet' labeled internet on the router itself to provide the connection to the router.
