power and computer line in same chase bad idea???
My reading of this forum suggests that power and data lines in close proximity are a bad idea, particularly if parallel, for efficient connection to a router. Unfortunately, the best way I can get a cable from my router to my 2nd story office is to use a difficult path I used last year to pull two 12ga lines from the basement to the attic (crazy path, drilling at sharp angles from interior walls on one floor to a closet on the next and so forth). I would use one of the existing cables to pull the line through the same path. So the cable would eventually be right next to and intertwined with these power lines. For a variety of reasons, wireless is not a good option. So, are my odds good for happy computing or should I give up on this idea and look for something else?
