Protect Net with Gigabit Protection Standalone data-line surge suppression for network telecommunication and PC system protection. Includes Protect Net unit 15cm Network patch cable and user manual.
From the manufacturer
Complete Security for Ethernet and LAN Network Devices
The PNET1GB Surge Protector, part of APC's ProtectNet series, offers complete protection to your 10/100/1000 Base-T networks and Power over Ethernet (PoE) systems in the event of unexpected surges in voltage from lightning, wiring faults, or utility problems.
IEEE Let-Through Rating of 60 Volts
Boasting an IEEE let-through rating of 60 volts, the PNET1GB is designed to prevent more than 60 volts of electricity from reaching your equipment. Since higher let-through rates can increase the risk of damage to your electronics, the 60-volt rating of the PNET1GB indicates that less voltage may strain and hinder the performance of your system.
Instantaneous Response Time
The PNET1GB is built around a metal oxide varistor (MOV), which instantaneously diverts excess surge voltage to the ground. Because it responds in under a nanosecond, the MOV can keep your equipment running while providing complete surge protection.
...but wait, there's more!
Fail-safe Feature Offers Additional Protection:
A thermal fuse works in conjunction with the MOV to cut the unit's connection to electrical current if it reaches a certain temperature. This means that even if the MOV is damaged by an overwhelming surge, the thermal fuse acts as a fail-safe feature, disconnecting your equipment from the power source so that excess voltage is unable to reach your network.

Given that I never sustain maximum data transfer rates this is not an issue, especially if it means the next time we have a storm I don't end up having to spend £200 on another Vigor - thankfully in the six months since I've had it we've not had a real live "what the eff was that" situation.
After extending my home network 30metres to an out building, using a roof-roof Cat6 cable, I started to think about the impact of lightning induced currents passing up and down the cable into my router and switches. I wanted something that could be easily installed into the existing set up and a search came up with these. APC have lots of industry qualified products suitable for a large range of equipments and scenarios, all aimed at surge current and over-voltage protection. So they appear well spec'd. Following the instructions I put one at each end of my exposed link cable adjacent to the Netgear switches; as an earth bonding point I used a mains inlet earth. I chose this approach rather than running a dedicated bonding cable back to the consumer units in the two buildings as it would have been a bit of a routing challenge. Can I tell if they are working? no, but then I've not noticed any impact on my 1Gb inter-building speed. They are cleared to 1000BaseT the Amazon description is incorrect. Hopefully I'll never notice them working when the next lightning storm passes by.
The ProtectNet is fitted inline. It comes with a very short (CAT5e?) cable to hook it up to my router, and the other end to my existing network (CAT6 to a gigabit switch with everything wired attached).
I wanted to use the ground wire, but didn't have a place to attach it to (I have electric heating, so no convenient grounded central heating pipes at hand). In the end I cut the crimped connector off the ground, and wired it into the earth of a normal 3 pin UK plug, and plugged that into the surge suppressor. (I'm not sure if you are supposed to do this, I googled - but found nothing, but it seems like common sense. Perhaps an electrician will leave a comment?).
My home has *not* been struck by lighting since installing, so I cannot vouch for its effectiveness, and even if it is struck; I reckon the surge suppressor would beat it to the punch.
I imagine the chance of both suppressors failing at the same time, with one lighting strike, is far less likely than a single suppressor failing. Double protection (fingers crossed!).
