Re: [Info] 12-Outlet Home/Office Surge Protector w/Phone/Etherne

said by devolic:

so what are you basically saying

Cable needs no protector. Best protection is an existing wire from that cable to earth ground. What does a protector do? Makes the same connection only when a utility wire cannot connect to earth directly. Protection is always about the earth ground; not about a protector.

BTW who is responsible for maintaining that ground? You. Nobody else. You are responsible for the common earth ground shared by cable, telephone, satellite dish and AC electric. That ground is essential for human safety (as defined by code). And also does another function - transistor safety. Inspect it. Or hire someone to identify it.
