RJ-11 is standard modular phone connector. There are 3 different types: 2, 4, and 6 conductor connectors. They're all the same, except that contacts or wires are missing. Ordinary phone connectors are 4-conductor (2 pairs = 2 phone lines). Sometimes you get a phone wire that only has 2 conductors in it; this will screw you up IF you're trying to run more than 1 phone line. There's also a little-bitty Version of this Connector that only has 2 conductors on it. It will fit in the SAME socket.
