You shouldn't have to un-twist it to fit it under a carpet, just strip the outer plastic off to reduce the size a bit. I reckon wire mesh from an arial cable would reduce inteference. I'm not sure how well standard cat5 takes to being walked over and trod on, mind.

Plus the outside jacket acts as a waveguide especially important for Cat 6.

The twisted pair name just reffers to one bit of the puzzle. It relys on the pairs being twisted and the pairs themselves being twisted around each other to cancel out interfearance. Also the vast majority of the interfearence that you need to worry about is found inside the cable itself. If the wires become two stright for to lond a distance they turn into transmit and recive antennas. This causes NEXT (near end cross talk) where the signals jump from one wire into its neighbours trashing the actual signal completely.

the wireless in honesty was my bosses idea, not mine, i did warn against it but as most of the work is going to be on the VLP, its not my area of responsibilty. I have said that I may need to lay a cable to each table, but it was thrown out as a solution!
