Default Phone Jack and Ethernet?

Can you use an Ethernet cord in a phone jack in the back of a computer?

The phone jack on the computer is a MODEM. Why would you want to connect an ethernet cable to it?

You've already asked that question and I had to ask one in order to help you. If you don't respond any different than you did both times you've posted, I doubt anyone can help you. I certainly can't.

Please explain what you're trying to accomplish. If you're just wanting an answer, then it's NO. A modem uses a RJ11 connector and an ethernet cable uses a RJ-45 connector. One won't physically connect with the other.

No is not possible because the ethernet cable has double of wires then phone cable to forward data. You can do the change only if you want to use the ethernet cable as phone cable so you must cut the wires you don't use but it is inadvisable.
