Thats Ok - as you are probaly already aware your cableing appears to have been wired for dedicated phone use only with one pair connected (blue&blue/white) and 3 spare pairs in each cable (except for the one or two cables that appear to have to have 2 of the other pairs attached to a rj45 to terminal block in your hub)

A sugestion is to convert your cableing to non-dedicated structured wireing both ends of the cable  terminated on RJ45s (all 4 pairs terminated) and to make multipule use of a single jkpt, addaptor plugs are used, which are commonly refered to as spliters (Not to be confused with a master spliter), to break out the pairs for seperate use if required or you can use a jkpt for data (1000) and another for a phone.

If you want to keep your existing RJ11s and just add RJ45s for data (10/100) then you never terminate the third pair (Brown&Brown/white)

Any links for the adapter plugs/splitters you're talking about? They aren't the dsl filter you get with modems which splits into a BT and RJ11 Plug right´╝č

Are you saying that i disconnect the single pair already connect on both the panel and the jack turning it back to a full speed gigabit ethernet cable than use your splitters and both ends..?

Would a non terminated pair of wires actually do anything since it's not connected at both ends at all?

Something like this?

These sorts of things:

They use two pairs for ethernet (up to 100Mb) and the other two for a phone line. You use one at the patch panel end, and one at the outlet end.

Electrically, it's very similar to what you have, but it means that each and every port is wired to the same standard, and can be easily and quickly re-patched for whatever service is needed.
