Have been confused about using battery backup/surge protector or both.
In questioning friends as to their configuration re such protection, I get a variety of do's and don'ts along with dire warnings about what should/should not be used. None of them are techs, so remain confused. Can someone here clarify the best protection to use and why?
These are some of the configurations my friends are using:
1 - battery back up and surge protector with just battery back up plugged into wall
2 - heavy duty extension cord with many outlets and just plugged into wall
3 - surge protector alone with many outlets and plugged into wall
4 - battery backup, with both surge and battery backup protection outlets, and the battery
backup plugged into the wall
5 - battery backup and surge protector with battery BU plugged into wall and modem plugged into
wall by itself with the claim that no interference of modem signal should exist between it and
Have a Dell computer, XPS 400, XP Pro SP2
Thanks for any help someone can suggest.
