Ethernet and Metal Conduit/Channel

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am fixing to run three lines of Ethernet to my Living room from my Current switch.

I am unable to run the cables inside the walls (Double wide Mobile home FML) so a surface run is my only choice. I am trying to figure out what I should use to hide the wires and make it look nice.

I was just wondering if I used a metal conduit or Raceway, Would it impact the performance of the Ethernet cable?

Im currently running Unshielded twisted pair.

Nope, no performance impact at all, unless it's going to have high draw power lines run through it too :)

Yah, a nice metal or even plastic shroud that you can paint would make it look really nice :)

Thanks! Ive never ran Ethernet inside a metal channel or raceway so I wanted to make sure its not going to impact the cable.

 

Another question: Think I can cut a hole in the wall and install the box inside the wall so the wallplate is flush with the wall?
