Hello
I seem to have been extra unlucky with losing my internet Modem during storms...3 in the last 3 months. One just last weekend.

I was averaging 1 a year, and was wondering if there is any advice on kit to use to avoid it being so frequent?

I have surge protection on the electric socket, but it seems to be via the phone line!

Any suggestions (other than unplug every time there is a storm), or has anyone heard of issue with phone lines that may explain why it is now more frequent...maybe OTE "earth" issues?

As I said at the beginning...maybe I am just unlucky!

There are many surge protectors on the market. Here is the one use. Best to buy two as the protector seems to blow instead of the modem.

Thanks Graham
Funny enough just purchased 2 of them and took one apart to see what was inside (I was curious as to how such a cheap and basic thing works)
...Its definitely got some little extra component inside, so its good to hear they work. I will definitely give it a try and at that price I don't mind changing it a few times a year!
