I personally have not, but the LEDs look like they're just standard
run-of-the-mill 1K-pullups (the 1K resistance is built into the LED). I
believe they're there just to give a visual indication of
ring-insertion, so you'll probably be able to get away without them. For
a quick test, try putting just the 22 nF capacitors across the pins
shown in the diagram and see if the router will insert into the "ring."
In any event, both parts can typically be had for pennies apiece.

Has anyone made this cable?  I am wondering if there is anything more
specific to know about the type of LED's that are indicated in the
schematic.  Thanks.
