Re: Which Cable Modem?

said by noc007:

A little OT:
Does anyone know if the 5341J will take the hit on a lightning strike or a surge instead of passing the surge on? Back a few years ago I had one of the popular Moto D2 modems. Had a lightning storm and my router's WAN interface was fried; the modem still worked like a champ, but my more expensive router paid the price.

I have my Moto SB6121 plugged into an APC UPS, and replaced my ground block with a TII model 212 coaxial surge protector: »www.digicomm.com/tii210.pdf

Haven't had any problems yet with lightning storms.

telcodad and graysonf, thanks for the info and links. I went ahead and picked up a 212 from Amazon. I need to check my UPS to see if it has the coax surge protection as well or make it a requirement for my next UPS purchase; it sounds like they've done a better job with them today. I tried to use the coax surge protection on a UPS over a decade ago and all it did was make the service unusable so I've been ignoring them all this time.
