Just finished reading the article "How to Make Your Own Network Cables". At the end some Cabling Rules are stated. I would appreciate if someone could help me clarify some of them.
"4. Keep cables away from devices which can introduce noise into them. Here's a short list: copy machines, electric heaters, speakers, printers, TV sets, fluorescent lights, copiers, welding machines, microwave ovens, telephones, fans, elevators, motors, electric ovens, dryers, washing machines, and shop equipment."
I'm planning to run the cable beside RG-59 cable tv wire. Will this create interferance? (Note: The cable will not actually come close to a television)
6. Do not run UTP cable outside of a building. It presents a very dangerous lightning hazard!
Due to the nature of the network, I am required to run it outside. However, it will have plastic siding covering it, and it will not be more than 8 feet high off the ground (the house is about 25 feet high). The wire will be "hugging" the house the entire time. Will this still create a problem?
Thanks in advance,
