    Are you sure that's not just perspective?

    Regardless, RJ45 is 8 pin. That plug is clearly 6. Cat5/6 is 8 wire, Orange/Green/Blue/Brown in solid colour and striped white.

    looks very similar, the latch thing is off center, that's the problem

    What is this connector for exactly?

    The wiring seems almost electrical.

    You're right, but RJ14 is also for phones, just not what we use. RJ11 only use 2 wires as well. RJ14 use 4

    It looks like it might be an RJ25 with a proprietary clip (being off to the side)

    You could maybe get an RJ25, crimp it, break off the tab, and find another way to hold it in place, worse case scenario...
