I'm mounting patch antennas on an outside wall, drilling a small hole in wall, and connecting the antennas to a 1200AP on the inside wall. I plan on setuping up a fiber segment on the cable run to the switch. My questions, 1) Should I install lightning arrestors between the antenna cable and RP-TNC connectors? 2) How long distance should the fiber segment be? Thank you.
If your switch has a fiber port, you can just get a single compatible fiber xceiver and take the fiber link directly to the switch.
The non-coax connection on the lightning arrestor shold go directly to a grounding system (buried rod, cold water pipe ...)on large guage copper wire (I believe 6ga copper is typical for a direct system)
It is critical that the connections be well-bonded, clean, and as direct as possible with no sharp bends.
If you are interested in reading up on lightning protection (a nice thing to know if you're installing stuff outdoors & on rooftops)), PolyPhaser (.com) has a very good book on the subject that explains the details of a good lightning protection system.
Post up any additional questions. This is one of those things that just has to be right or the whole system is at risk.
It is also critical to keep the fiber transcievers plugged into seperate AC breakers. If lighting does travel thru the AP, ethernet cable to the fiber transciever, you do not want it then traveling thru the AC line to the other transcieve and continuing down the ethernet line to the switch.

The script should be completely self explanatory.
