I've heard it's not good to run Cat 6 cables over AC cables in the walls/attics... but is it alright to run Cat 6 alongside tv coaxial cables?

No good because of interference between the cat 5/6 and mains can cause problems, and besides the electrical regulations require segeration of services power/phone/data/tv signal, usually the voltage rating of comms/data is quite low and if run next to damaged mains there is the possibility of the cables becoming electrically live.

What coax is installed? Immediate answer would be 'no', no interference between coax and cat6.

Coax and Cat 6 will go fine together. Separation is required only between the high and low voltage wiring.

Oh, and if I was connecting the Cat 5e/6 cables, would I follow the T-568A or the T-568B here in NZ?

Thanks.

ELV (and TNV) to LV?, Legal requirement, punishable by removal of electrical registration is 50mm or a solid permanent insulating separator. Recommended 300mm minimum for interference mitigation.

568A.


Doesn't it depend on the cable?  I've seen both 568A and 568B labelled on cables (no the same cable obviously).
