Will network cable and phone extension interfere ?


[link to this post]
 
Straight forward question.

If I lay a telphone extension cable from master socket to another access point following the same route as an existing network cable will they interfere with each other ?

The network cable is carrying data from a modem so already converted from the "raw" signal from master socket. The telephone cable will be a straight forward hard wired in cable from the master. Both ending at a dual phone/lan socket on a wall.The cable will be / is external grade as it goes along outside walls.

If you mean a cable carrying ethernet data, it should fine

In reply to a post by MHC:
No.

An answer from MHC on this sort of topic should be good enough for anyone.

As I answered - NO it will not interfere. Although I should add a caveat ... unless there is a fault.

There will be cross talk but the level will be so low and the levels measureable in dBn or dBp (dB nanowatt/picowatt) it will not cause interference.
