Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
If the router has the voltage and current specs listed, there's no reason you can't simply get a regulated wall-wart from Radio Shack if they have one with those ratings (or the same voltage and higher current). They have several models with interchangeable tips, so you'll probably find one that fits. If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can always tack a pigtail onto the board with a different connector if you can't find a mate for the current one. I've never done this on a D-Link, but both techniques have worked on Linksys and Netgear routers. Just be careful of polarity. Sometimes the label doesn't show it, although tip-positive is most common. You can check with an ohmmeter to determine which connection is ground.
Good luck, 73, and thanks for using Fixya! (I'm KA3O, BTW, and now my cover's blown.)
