    He is talking about AC grounding the Router. Most routers come with a wall wart, where I use an AC Grounded linear supply to run mine. This simply means that electrically, the outer sleeve of the barrel connector that provides power to the router is tied to the AC Ground of the power circuit at the wall outlet somehow.

    Iíve got a switch between my router and my dac feed .... would I power that switch with an AC Grounded linear supply?

    AC Ground all network equipment that has to do with your audio system if you can. However, whatever component that is connected to your DAC or Server is most important with regards to AC Grounding.

    I have previously used an entreq silver minimus on my router to good effect. You can however achieve much the same result at a dramatically lower cost by building yourself an X-Terminator shorting plug as I mentioned earlier in this thread. There is a ‘recipe’ on the link below which will need to be autotranslated in Google Chrome or similar and I used Takman metal film resistors directly into a Telegartner rj45 plug. I also found that just one shorting plug per router was optimal otherwise the sound became overly damped.

    Thanks for your information. I have an Aqvox switch connected with an Entreq Apollo Infinity RJ45 cable to an Entreq Silver Minimus. The energy is delivered by an LPS manufactured by Kenneth Lau. However, this LPS does not have its chassis grounded. The only way I know how to connect it to the ground is through a cable to an Entreq type box. I do not know if Paul79 was explaining another system, because frankly this time Google translate did not do a good job and I did not understand his explanation well.

    Yes, with earth ground connected to DC-common, not just chassis earth-grounded.
