    Looks like a standard AC adapter you could get at radio shack.

    Just remember to get the right voltage AND the right current rating, it doesn't have to be the same current value as long as it's higher then the one you have now.

    Contact actiontec and get the right part. A wrong replacement can cause instability, or damage/death to the router, increased lightning damage susceptibility, etc.

    Actiontec Electronics, Inc.760 North Mary Ave.Sunnyvale, CA 94086
    United StatesTel: (408) 752-7700 Fax: (408) 541-9005

    If you must, or as a temporary fix - Radio Schlock sells a universal power brick. Has a dozen plugs, and voltage select by switch. Used to be $30, but that's a major portion of the price of a new router...

    Then there are questions about the power quality provided. You have to get the detail spec on the original brick to be sure a replacement will work.

    Look on the power brick. The info you need is:
    1) Pos or Neg ground?
    2) Output Voltage rating
    3) Output Current or wattage rating

    Thinsg that won't be spec'd are:
    4) Regulation level
    5) Ripple level
