So I have a wallplate with just an RJ11 port on it. I have wired an ethernet connection and now want to swap the wall plate out for a 2 port keystone wall plate and leave the RJ11 connection undisturbed.
The old RJ11 is daisy-chained, like so, but actually with 3 connections (this photo is of a similar type of connection, specifically, one with screws on the back, making it easy to connect 1, 2, 3, or, I imagine, 5 wires if you really wanted to:
I now have an RJ11 keystone port like so:
and everything I can find says that you cannot just punch down multiple wires into such a port. As a note, I tried it before looking it up, and it didn't work. At best the top wire (3rd on one) wasn't held in well. At worst, it wasn't held in at all. I could strip back the wires and connect them further down the line, then terminate (punch down) one into the port, but that seems hackish and I believe would cause higher resistance and thus heat on the single wire that goes to the port?
Surely I am not the first to run into this but I can not find Anything referencing replacing daisy-chained connections (via the screw-down type of wall plate) with keystone ports, so I am at a loss.
