Cut phone wire loop for jack?
I'm popping a jack into an existing room which has phone wire stuffed into unfinished outlet hole, in other words, the room was wired in original construction 40 years ago but no actual jack installed.
The wire is easily accessible but I don't see an "end" to ther wire -- instead I'm holding a loop of wire. I'm assuming that one end leads from the NID and the other goes to phone jack in adjoining room.
So if I splice wire where I want to put my new jack ... do I connect both ends of the splice (from loop) to my new jack? I don't really know what I'm doing here ...
Thanks for any advice.
