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.

No you must use a power transformer cord of the same rating, you could try finding a used one at A RC PC shop in your area!

Power supply


The power supply is built in to the 'power cord'. On most consumer routers there is a transformer and rectifier built in to the wall plug. The cord that connects to the device carries low voltage DC current to the electronics inside the router case that has all of the other RJ-45 sockets, indicator lights and antennas.

Search ebay for your router and include the words power supply.

I've lost my adaptor to my router. I just need to find a place that sells parts.


Try this site, find an adapter that is same voltage as the one that came with the d-link, i think its 12v 1.2a so if you get a 1000ma or 500ma 12v power supply should do the trick.
