So the original cat5 cable that was from our basement (modem and router) to my bedroom got damaged somehow last week. My internet is not working . When the first cable was installed, it was installed by folks who really did not know what they were doing. Cables have those horseshoe type nails pinning htem right against the wall, with probably 5 sharp 90 degree turns, parallel to a main electrical cable for the most of it's journey. So I have clearance from my parents to rewire it myself
Now, I was going to put the cable inside PVC pipe because I have 20ft of 3/4" ID pipe already. THis way it will be protected, and it will not be necessary to pin the cable directly. Also, I am choose a more direct route to my bedroom, because it won't be going parallel to beams but will still be protected. There is still a flourescent light in my path, about 1ft away. I understand one should avoid these if at all possible. My question is, will the PVC pipe offer any sort of protection against this? Will it offer any protection against induced current from heavy electrical wire?
