You should do likewise with the ground leads of the computer and
router.  All three devices should supplied from the same grounded
circuit (preferably from the same outlet).  Your goal is to assure that
when lightning strikes the power line or the phone line all of your
machines are held at the same potential so that current will not flow
from one to another via the signal lines.
