so instead of using the RJ-14 plug, cut it off and stick an RJ-45 on it?


You usually use a plug that matches what ever jack you are using.

I checked with the distributor, he said he's going to check for me when he gets back to the office. But he agreed with me that 98% of RJ-45 jacks also take RJ-11, RJ-14, and RJ-25 plugs. The only ones that don't are laptop RJ-45's since they have to be of foolproof architecture (since they're side by side with the modem jack)

I already have a 6m 4 conductor RJ-14 phone cord+plug, so why re-terminate if I don't have to.

So just for testing, I took a 2m piece of Cat5 that my cat chewed through, and wired it up with no terminals, just soldered up headers. I took all of the striped wires and solid orange for ground, blue is 5 volts, green is Tx, and brown is Rx. Seems to be working alright.
