The Cisco IP Phone 7960G/7940G has two RJ-45 ports that each support 10/100 Mbps half- or full-duplex connections to external devices—the network port and the access port. You can use either Category 3 or Category 5 cabling for 10-Mpbs connections, but use Category 5 for 100-Mbps connections. On both the LAN-to-phone port (left RJ-45 port facing the back of the phone) and the PC-to-phone port (right port), use full-duplex to avoid collisions. Use the LAN-to-phone port to connect the phone to the network. Use the PC-to-phone port to connect a network device, such as a computer, to the phone.
