Hence the '?' on the end. I wasn't sure.
Now I know :)
So why is it still a bad idea to put cat5 near mains lines?
And why can I hear a buzz on my phone line when I have lots of cat5

(okay, maybe the phone system isn't balanced - does that explain it?)
(how do I solve the prob then apart from VoIP? :-))
