PostPosted: Thu Nov 04, 2004 6:09 pm    Post subject: Multi-Voltage adapter for RT31P2? Reply with quote Back to top

I just got my RT31P2 adapter today for my new Vonage service and thought it came with a 110/220 Voltage adapter but it is only for 110 Volts. I spend a lot of time overseas and need one that also does 220 Volts also. I guess I could buy a universal one but it has 12V DC & 1 amp output and the 1 amp is sort of high for finding a universal adapter that supports those high amps. I might be able to but though I would check here first. Anyone know how to get a multi-Voltage adapter for the RT31P2?

I second that... also the fact that you can't have two phone adapters and flip the MAC online is very restrictive.. I didn't know that and bought PAP2 for travels, since it does have 110-220.. but have to return it since you can only have 1 phone adapter per phone number..

I think QoS will be much better with the RT31P2 compared to PAP2 since it's all integrated into the router..

so.. anywhere to get/make the international adapter??

As I remember, it's been a long time since I traveled abroad, you could purchase a converter to match the requirements of European electrical specifications and then simply plug the American device into the European adapter. I would be very surprised if you were unable to purchase one even at Radio Shack.

After all, it's just a step down transformer with European wall jacks at the input end and a standard American electrical socket on the other. They have to exist somewhere.

Oh, one more thing. Amperage is drawn from the source. The source does not force a device to accept it's amperage rating. For instance, if you plug a device that requires 1 ampere into a source that can supply 5 amperes, nothing happens. The 5 amp source runs cooler and the 1 amp device is assured that the current that it needs is available. The 1 amp device should be fused to 1 amp for safety.

They sale those devices at Walmart to transfer from 110-220 or vice versa.

Ok, I have a Vonage linksys wireless router purchased in the US. I also have a linksys router I bought here, overseas. My US one is naturally 110 voltage 1A, my international one (from Europe) is 220 V 1A. Can I use that one for my US router? I ask because I am stuck here and my adapter is shot (don't know why), and I have no way of getting a new one in a short amount of time.

If:
the plug fits, and
the OUTPUT DC voltage is the same, and
the POLARITY is the same, and
the unit can feed enough AMPERAGE...

you can use any power converter you want.

Look at the European unit, what is the rated output? Does it match the US unit? Most Linksys routers have 12V DC at 1A. If the European one can output the same power at the same polarity as the US one, then it will work fine.
