APC ProtectNet

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/12/2013


I had from one to next house 15 meters air line cat 5e shielded cable connecting router in house 1 to switch in second.

i dont understand that i should connect APC ProtectNet behind router in house1 and before switch or only in house 1?

simple scheme (which is good?)

1)

   house 1                                  15 meters cat 5e                                      house 2

    router -- APC ProtectNet -------------------------------- APC ProtectNet --- switch

2)

   house 1                                  15 meters cat 5e        house 2

    router -- APC ProtectNet --------------------------------  switch

regards,

Hello,

You should go with #1 but keep in mind, you're creating a ground loop scenario (which is not good).

More info here on ground loops to better help understand -> Ground loop (electricity) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
