Ethernet Port Damage

We are experiencing an unusual amount of damage to our Ethernet ports at one particular site. The site has a high lighting potential due to it's open and elevated location. However, the data to the port is brought in to the building over fiber into a 3com fiber hub before it reaches the router. We have lost 3 ports in less than a year. Is there anything we can do to protect the router (1605 model) or is there possibly another reason for the damage?

Re: Ethernet Port Damage

The reason already is specified in yr query. Lightning potential.A proper lightning urrestor would serve the purpose...i suppose..Please tell me whether any other equipmernt is also getting damaged with this port.
