Ideal (www.idealindustries.com Watch out, they assume a broadband
connection!) has a set that does MMJ & RJ45 in thte same frame, #30-497, and
ones that do various other combinations of RJ11, RJ12, , RJ45 and handset
crimps. I've got one on order, haven't gotten around to picking it up yet.
Should be less than $35-- don't pay the $50 that Microcenter wants.

Ivory colored flat unshielded 6 conductor. All Electronics
(www.allelectronics.com) had some the last time I checked, but I don't know
how their price holds up-- I haven't shopped the cable around yet. Dunno
where to get the ends yet either.
