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

Just for giggles:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
