In my experience, twisted pair LAN cables work just fine with ferrite beads 
on them.  When I wired my house, I put ferrite beads around the cat-5 cable 
behind every wall jack.  I also put them on the cables at the hub end 
before I crimped on the connector.  I bought a huge bag of ferrite beads at 
a swapmeet once that fit nicely over the cat-5 cable.  Also fit nicely over 
the burglar alarm cables.
