T-1 connection

By jfriend ·
We have a new T-1 circuit installed and our ISP has failed to get our cisco 2600 router here on time. I would like to try to borrow the equipment necessary to temporarily use the circuit until our ISP gets it together.

I have a T-1 circuit live and tested from the LEC installed with what appears to be an ordinary CAT 5 cable coming out of the T-1 card at the Demarc. A friend loaned me a T-1 CSU/DSU but, the ports on this unit don't appear to accept an RJ45 type connector? Can someone helpme out by pointing me to information about the cables and interfaces that I might need to scrounge up to get my company back online? I thought that if I got a CSU/DSU and a router/bridge I could start using the circuit but, this is all new to me.

I can give more help if you let me know what model of CSU/DSU you have and what model of router you will be using.

The most common configuration on a CSU/DSU is to have an RJ45 connection for the incoming T1 line from the telco demarc and a v.35 serial connection to the router. But there certainly are other ways to do it and there should be a way to make it work with what you have available.

By now you have probably gotten your ISP to move their @#$, however...

You have to plug it into the Network Jack, not control or chaining jack.

There are 2 types of RJ45 connectors one has a centered locking clip and the other has an off-set clip.

The Demarc is normally an RJ48 type jack that you plug into, not that you plug in.

Depending on the model of TSU, you will either need a V.35 to mini-winchester or an RS??? (I believe RS454) to mini-Winchester interface cable or a flat ribbon/cat 5 cable pinned out for T1 and T1 interface on the router.
