|Thanks! I looked at the link. My question is this: DSL has two parts: RJ11 going in; RJ45 going out. If RJ11 is protected, I would think there's no need to protect RJ45 segment also. That would seem redundant to me.|
But if you have FIOS modem that's another story. I don't think you can surge protect fiber going to the modem, but I think you can surge protect RJ-45 coming out of the modem, assuming FIOS works that way.
I have DSL. So I should be OK protecting the RJ11 segment only or am I missing something? The signal is going through the RJ11 into the suppressor, then into the DSL modem, then out the RJ45. In this case, what do I need to protect the RJ45 also for? The incoming signal's already protected!
