Is a surge suppressor useful at all if your room's outlets are not grounded?

@thomas-pondant,
If the outlet is ungrounded then a surge suppressor doesn't have a ground to send the surge to away from your equipment. This will create a ground loop.

Also, regardless of the surge suppressor it will only be able to handle so much based on clamping voltage. The better the suppressor is the lower the clamping voltage.

It is hard getting Cisco hardware with up to date IOS installed. I did a Cisco Virtual Lab and use Packet Tracer. I messed with GNS but I would need to strip VIRL of the IOS files to get it to work completely and violate my EULA. Cisco also has 3000 minute practice labs for CCNP level that contain everything. I have not tried the ITPro stuff.
