Wireless modem power supply died!

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.

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

Just for giggles:
