recently i bought two surge protectors because i wanted to connect two house that are about 60metres apart from each other via a cat 5 cable, the question is how do i cable the connections? from my first house i have a router that's acting as my dhcp, so if i make a straight cable to the next house i get internet connectivity, without using any of the surge protectors. now i need to install the surge protectors just after my router and also just before the pc i am connecting 60metres away. do i use a cross over in-between or i use a straight cable and where do i earth the surge protectors?

please help

To connect two houses by ethernet cable get, or at least consult, a qualified electrician. Also, if you do it yourself check for local building codes that may apply. Other than that we cannot advise. Closing.
