The adaper was too powerful, you should have stuck to the original voltage and you may have burned up some wires inside which was the reason for it smoking and you cannot use it again or the next time it may result to a fire and you dont want that so go to office max, staples, radio shack, or best buy to find the adapter that will work for you. I prefer best buy because there is always someone there in the computer parts to help and assist you with the product you are looking for. I hope that this will help you in some way, let me know and Good Luck!

My magicjackplus says to check phone line (was working for a year+ before this). It will work with any phone but only if it is plugged into the computer. Does the adaptor need replacing?


the adapter simply converts your 120 volt house current to 5 volt DC for the MagicJack. Plugging the USB wire into the computer supplies this power to the MagicJack. So a new adapter might just solve the problem.

Here's what you can do since this is a USB wireless adapter, first connect the USB adapter on a different USB port on the computer better if you connect it on the back USB port of the computer tower and check if the computer will recognize it and if its recognize you can already continue with the software installation , but if not you can restart first the computer and check if the adapter will be recognized if still not the next thing to do here just to know if the adapter is good or bad is to connect it on a different computer and just to check if it will be recognized once its connected to a USB port , because a device should be automatically will be recognized by a computer once you connect it so if its still not recognized by a different computer adapter is bad...

Modem power adaptor


On the bottom of the Modem, it usually lists the type of voltage/current ratio, for example, My modem is a 12VDC in, output is .75A Through the modem. Each modem has its own power requirements. Therefore if they dont match, you have the chance of either underpower (which means no use) or overpowering (and killing your modem permanently)

Best suggestion si the same as above by cnavarro, Buy the Right power supply for it, dont just try anything. get the matching one. Otherwise it will be Incident A or Incident B. Neither would work well, and you would end up buying a new modem all together.

Can I use a Powerline product on a European 220 volt electrical system?


No. Currently we are only offering Powerline products for the North American market, with support for standard 120 Volt AC, 60 Hz electrical outlets. Simply plugging a 120 > 220 volt adapter will not work, as the transformer will block the broadband signal, not to mention that the increased voltage that is likely to leak through a standard adapter could destroy the product.
