A lightning protection system doesn't attract, repel, or prevent a lightning strike. It provides an efficient grounding network that provides a low-resistance path to the ground for lightning's electricity.
A lightning rod or lightning conductor is a metal rod mounted on a structure and intended to protect the structure from a lightning strike. According to the traditional Franklin design, the router should be installed under a cone of 45 degrees.
Please use heavy cables that carry lightning current from the rods to the ground. Conductor cable attached on the router then down to the ground rod.
Please use a long, thick, and heavy ground rod and bury it deep into the earth. The conductor cable connects to the ground rod to complete a safe path for a lightning discharge around the router.
