I switched my coax network over to 100MB twisted pair a couple of months
ago. Saw NO increase in radiated noise. I did see, however, some
impact when I'm running KW on 75 and browsing at the same time. So, the
usual RF chokes at the switch(faster than a hub) and at each network
card. Viola -- no problem.
If you have cable modem or ISDN or ADSL coming your way, go for it.
