✔ Best Answer
Effects of power surges:

You should always have any computer equipment plugged into the mains through a "surge protector" which can be bought as a multi-socket extension cable which plugs into an ordinary mains socket. Belkin make most of these in several different configurations, some of which include phone sockets (in/out) and ethernet sockets (in/out) to protect your internet equipment as well as your computer.
