I would not suggest that this would be safe, as the extra voltage will put a strain on the components in the router, and although it may work for a little while I am sure that it will eventually break down... it could potentially get hot enough to cause serious damage and even catch fire, so I would avoid using a higher voltage/current adapter.

SOURCE: My cat chewed the wire

If the damage is minor, you can cut out the chewed-up part of the cord and splice the remaining parts together. You'll note that the cord is two wires running side-by-side. Separate them for a couple of inches. Strip off a half-inch or so of the insulation from the ends. Twist the bare ends together, from the wall part to the plug, and insulate the connection with electrical tape. Repeat for the other wire. Make sure you keep the polarity correct; one of the wires will have a rib on it or will be marked with a color stripe.

If the cat's made a complete hash of the cord or you don't feel comfortable trying to fix it, Radio Shack sells a good assortment of replacement adapters. You want to find a replacement with the same voltage and current rating as the original and the same size plug to fit the phone base. You might also be able to find a replacement online if you search by your phone's brand and model. Another option is to check thrift stores or resale shops like Goodwill in your area. They often have a lot of these adapters (also called "wall-warts") to pick through, and may have a suitable one. I've been able to find several I've needed at the stores here, and they're usually only a dollar or so.

Of course, the absolute last resort is to replace the phone, but that's no fun.

Radio Shack and big-box home improvement stores like Home Depot sell plastic tubing you can put around wires to gather a bunch of loose ones together and protect against further kitty attack. You might want to invest in some (it's cheap!) to avoid future damage. It's also nice for general neatening of computer or stereo hookups.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
