    I had to replace a jack for the phone on the wall yesterday because
    my wife likes to pull on things. I bought a unit from our local
    junk store and when I installed it, I noticed it has 2 extra wires and
    thus could support all 6 lanes in the plug, if I had them.

    These extra wires are white and blue. What would be the most
    common use for these extra wires?

    Blue & blue/white is line 1
    Orange & orange/white is line 2
    Green & green/white is line 3
    Brown & brown/white is line 4

    Some ppl. with a 'whole house" DSL filter will put the unfilered voice
    on blue - blue/white, then the filtered DSL goes on orange -
    orange/white. That way they don't need to rewire every jack in the
    house. The extra two pair are for extra phone or DSL lines.
