So I recently figured out that my Laser Printer in my office is causing my whole house to have a significant voltage drop. When I have the A/C on and the laser printer running my cable modem that is connected in my living room is failing and I am probably doing damage to my server and my tivo as they are not behind a UPS or line conditioner.


No I can't move the Laser to another circit. It has to stay in place.


I am very space limited and need something small.


I need to plug in 8 devices. I want to plug in my: TIVO, Cable Modem, Router, Denon CI AVR, TIVO hard drive, Home Server, Xbox, Network Switch


suggestions? I couldn't find anything easily in search, I might have the wrong search terms.




[edit: 8/13/12 - BUMP! it hit 115 here today and my home server had all red lights. I have to do SOMETHING!]

When I read symptoms like that, my first thought is it's a "lost neutral problem". A poor Neutral connection in your house or out to the power company's transformer can cause on leg/phase to go low and the other to go high under heavy load.

I think he is saying you may have a bad line between your home and service
