I'm trying to wire a phone jack in a roomthat didn't have one , and I'm not sure where to wire to on the NID?
also I'm using the cat 3 wire and not sure how to wire the jack which is the standard 4 color wire jack with the cat 3 wires? Any help or info would be greatly appreciated as thisdis for my father in law who has a medical implant that has to report to a machine that has to wired to a phone jack.

I have wired to the NIT to the red and green tab that was open similar to the other one in use and still no dial tone. I know It cant be this complicated. I should only have to use 2 wires correct? I'm using the solid orange to red and white and orange to tone.

RG...... Residential Gateway
Now to your question do you have POTS,wired at NID (network interface device) or VOIP (voice over IP) phones
If VOIP the phone is generated at RG, phone1light on front panel and comes out phone port back of RG.
If this is your case then one pair of wires comes from NID to RG, which RG by the way?
The voip needs to feed back to phone distribution point then to new room trying to wire.
Standard wiring color code used for cat 3 or cat 5 in uverse are blue pair...line 1,orange line 2, green data feed to RG, brown for power if needed.
In older quad wiring red/green equals blue/blue white (line1) while yellow/black equals orange pair line 2.
If have pots service, not voip, then from NID to phone distributions is one pair of wires and a different pair to RG ideally.
If this was a CSI, customer self install, then everthing is probably same set of wires to phones and RG with DSL filters on phone.
Again would just need pair 1 (red/green or blue pair (cat3)) to wire to center pins of new jack (red/green)

You can find dial tone on a jack by plugging in a phone. On wires you need open wires or clips. Once you find dial tone you want to be sure to connect it to the center prongs on the rj-11 jack. Easy for me to say. Hard for you to do.
