Subject: [SI-LIST] Home-brewed Power-Over-Ethernet? OT?

I use an Apple Airport Base Station (802.11b access point) in my home, and I

want to position it more centrally. In order to mount it on the ceiling

where I want it, I'll have to run Ethernet from the hub and run power from

the wall.

Can I run DC over the unused pairs of the Ethernet cable? Or would the noise

from the switching adapter cause problems? The adapter is a pretty

generic-looking wall-wart, and cable would be unshielded, solid-core CAT5.

The Ethernet is slow Ethernet (10 Mbps), and I'd be running it about 30

feet.

Ethernet uses two of the four pairs in the CAT5, and I could wire the

remaining pairs in whatever way would be best. Any suggestions? Thanks!
