I was wondering if the PWR-2911-POE and PWR-2911-AC can be installed in same 2911 router? Thanks.

No, both of them are power supplies. PWR-2911-AC is the standard power supply but the PWR-2911-POE is a bigger power supply to power up EHWIC or single/double-width line cards. Moreover, there is no physical way to put two same/different power supplies into a 2900 router. But 3800/3900 routers can support dual power supplies.

What are the power requirements for this modem - I have a 9V 1000mA powersupply that fits - is this the right voltage?

My 2Wire 1800hg original power transformer shows OUTPUT of 6V (Volt) and 2000ma. (The 2000ma is also known as 2amp, like 24 inches is also known as 2 feet). On polarity the inside hole is positive (+).

There is no power to my router. how do i know if i need a new power cord or if it is defective unit. 2wire 1800HG older model

You can measure the power cord voltage with a voltmeter. The specifications, and voltage output are on the transformer, or modem body. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can take the power supply into Best Buy, Radio Shack, or any computer shop, and they'll measure it for you. If the voltage is ok on the power supply, chances are you have a bad modem, in which case you'd be better off getting a new one. Hope this helps.

2Wire 1000HG power supply went bad. Need to replace but having trouble finding one. Would like to purchase in a store

Ok there is generally nothing "Special" about mains, wall power supplies, they simply provide DC volts, via a step down transformer, or switchmode technology, now there are ONLY three important things to know and they are, the Voltages, and Amperage, and Power Plug Polarity. You can often find this A: In the manual under Power Supply Specification, B:Or on the Actual power Supply itself, If one looks carefully, there is always on a UL listed power supply, the Output Voltage & Amperage, often Polarity is indicated too. If not, that can be gleaned usually, by looking besides the power input socket, on the actual unit, and, it usually, has a little drawing, with a dot and a 3/4 circle around it, with a + & - showing what goes where. In almost all occasions, though, it is Positive to the CENTER, & Negative to OUTER, (or earth). All you have to do, is get any other power supply that has the SAME Voltage and Current rating, IE: 12 Volts @ 2.5 Amps. Now any 12 Volt supply that gives, the same or MORE than 2.5 Amps will do. You just need to ensure that the Plug is right, often the plugs are different, that too, can be overcome, simply, by cutting off the OLD, plug, and cutting off the NEW plug, and joining, Old, to New end on PSU. Again, usually, Positive is the Center, and the Negative is the Outer. Right go get that supply. eBay or Radio Shack, are good places to start. Also any other "Laptop" power Supply that has same specs as described, will also work. As a matter of point, switchmode is generally "Cleaner" power than a transformer one.. but it is NOT critical.

I need to purchase a power supply cord for 2wire 2701HG-B Wireless Modem?

This are the specs you are looking for:

Input Voltage: 100-240VAC (50-60Hz)
Output Voltage: 5.1 Volts DC (not more!)
Amperage: 2.5 Amps (not less!)

I saw an adapter online for about 10$. Look here.

Apparently you are not the only one experiencing problems with the power supply. See here.
Someone found a replacement:
"...I have noticed that the power supply/charger for the Sony PSP has an output of 5VDC/2A center minus (neg) plug, and the plug fits perfectly in the 2wire gateway. I bought one out of sheer desperation at the local game store and it only cost me $15."
Not bad!

Good luck!

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Need replacement 5.1volt 2amp adapter (power supply) , part no. 1000-500031-000 for 2Wire dsl 2701HG-B modem . Other listed p/n for adapter is GPUSW0512000 GD1S. (My location is CT,USA)

Somehow, I think that these items sold new for about $ 23-29.00 dollars. Find the computer junk sales place nearest you, take the unit with you and go over there and negotiate for the price of a working used one (these things don;t grow old). Another route is I have had good luck with them.

My 2wire 1000Hw router keeps restarting

I have had three of these do the same thing. It is not the router causing the issue. It Is the power supply. I replaced mine with one from MPJA. It is a 4 Amp supply and I had to change the connector but total cost is $6.95 plus shipping on the power supply and $2.00 for the connector. Specifically inside the power supply is a 1000 uf cap that is bad and leaking. When the wifi and the DSL are both started the current is too high and the voltage drops causing the reset. Replacing the power supply fixed all three modems.
