Answer:
In addition to the green ground lead that is attached, this device also includes a short Ethernet cable that is about 6 inches long. The length is specific to APC engineering specifications and should be included in your installation with a direction to the PNet device. I hope this answers your question.

Answer:
Attach the green wire to a wall plate screw, or purchase a 3 prong AC plug and attach the green wire to the U shaped ground pin. then install plug

Answer:
Never had one fail yet, sure if I took a direct hit it would fail. A lot of power surges is just that, a small surge, but enough to fry a data port. These are very good at saving data ports, I would recommend making sure you have a good ground, and you should be good.

Answer:
If not grounded it has nowhere to drain the surge, so the answer is no. Keep in mind, even with older two-wire households there is a always an available ground (the neutral wire, although you don't normally use it as such since it will carry a current whenever you complete a circuit through a load). Grounded outlets … see more If not grounded it has nowhere to drain the surge, so the answer is no. Keep in mind, even with older two-wire households there is a always an available ground (the neutral wire, although you don't normally use it as such since it will carry a current whenever you complete a circuit through a load). Grounded outlets have a direct connection to an earth ground, typically a copper rod driven into the ground near your electric meter, so that will provide a ground if you don't have an already grounded box you can attache the device's ground lead to. To tap the ground for a duplex outlet, obtain a replacement plug and only connect the ground pin. You then can easily extend a 12 gauge ground wire from the plug to this device. see less If not grounded it has nowhere to drain the surge, so the answer is no.

Answer:
I know serial data signals are sometimes sent over wires with rJ45 plugs but this is floor Ethernet. APC and other companies do make data line surge protectors that are suitable for serial connections.

Answer:
Some Ethernet surge protectors will max out at 100 megabit, and could affect local performance to gigabit enabled devices, or internet throughout if you have service rated at over 100 megabit.

This unit will handle Gigabit, so as long as your devices and switches are gigabit Ethernet you’ll be fine.
