Can I use same CAT5 cable for network and phone?

I have Cat 5 running to the phone line...but want to hook the computer up by that wall plate....will the computer on the network work ok if I use the 2 pair of wires necessary for the 10base connection...and use the other 2 wires in the same cable for the phone??????--I have read about noise interference being a concern....what is the consensus here?

Thanks in advance

  1. ive done it, works beutifuly. only problem is you have to disconnect the wires at the box coming into your house. theres ac current flowing through those wires, even if the extra line isnt activated.
