This is probably a real noob question, but i need advice on wiring my landline in my house from my ONT.

 

The house is a new build with CAT6 and RJ45 ports in most rooms wired back to a DYNAMIX patch panel that is next to the ONT and Spark modem.

 

I want to connect the landline through to one of the ports in the house wired with CAT6.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks in advance for the advice

Yep - get an RJ11 (or 12) to RJ45 patch cable to go from the ONT to the patch panel.

 

EDIT: Probably far too long, but something like this https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/CABDNX7072/Dynamix-C-RJ1245-5-5M-RJ-12-to-RJ-45-Cable---4C-Al

yep, just use an RJ11 plug/lead between the phone and the wall outlet (or even better RJ 45 lead). 

 

At the patch panel, just patch it from there to the ONT (or modem / whichever the method of the ISP is to deliver voice).

Don't do this! The rj11 plug can damage the outer pins inside the rj45 socket.
Just get the correct cable as already suggested.
