I'm having problems with surges coming through my phone lines. I have lost several surge protectors, a 2 line phone & 2 modems in the computer. Phone Co. says phone line o.k. & is grounded. Wife said the lights dimmed the last time the modem went. I live within 1 mile of a power substation in a rural area. I have put 3/4 amp fuses on the phone lines, which helps some. It seems to be worse on damp days. If anyone has any advice on the cause of the surges or a device to help protect against the surges, it would be appreciated.
