Network cabinet and Fuse board


Active Member
Hi guys. I have just moved into my nice 30's house, and I am now looking at the possible locations of where I am going to lay all the cables. I am looking to put the cabinet under the stairs, but the fuse box, along with the electric meter and stuff are there. Can these 2 things live under the stairs together? There will be about 20cm distance between the 2. Is this enough?

Thanks all

20cm should be fine. I would say minimum of 5cm between network cable and mains. For extra protection though you could make that one run a STP cable. Maybe others will have a better suggestion?
