PostPosted: Wed Mar 23, 2005 3:10 am    Post subject: Power supply for Linksys RT31P2? [int'l roaming not working] Reply with quote Back to top

Hi,

I travel internationally to Europe and Asia frequently. My old Motorola VT1005 came with a 110-240 AC power supply. My new Linksys RT31P2 power supply only takes 110 AC (or so it says on the adapter). Has anyone else come across this and what is the solution (I don't want to buy voltage converters). I don't understand why something that worked well with the VT1005 would not be offered with the RT31P2. I can't travel with my Vonage unit for now...

I recently signed up with Vonage in anticipation of my move to Spain since, according to the Linksys router page on the Vonage website, "Your Phone Adapter makes a great travel companion. You can use it anywhere in the world where you have a high-speed Internet connection." (http://www.vonage.com/products_linksys.php)

When I received the Linksys RT31P2 router I noticed that it only accepts 120 volt input. I bought a voltage converter and even then the power light on the router blinks and neither the phone nor internet connections work. Occasionally when I plug it in the power light is steady on and the phone and internet work fine; but then after a minute or two it goes back on the blink.

So it seems a voltage converter is not the solution. I searched thoroughly for a 220v power supply for the RT31P2, with no luck. I think the only solution is to have Vonage swap out this RT31P2 for one that takes 110-220 input.

I sent a few emails to Vonage customer care and still have not received a non-automated response

I understand your point that it would be much better if RT31P2 would come with the 110-240 power supply, but I don't think it's that big of a problem buying appropriate adapter when you get to Europe/Asia. This should in no way stop you from using it overseas.

It is a problem. While my linksys router works with an adapter when I am in Argentina, it gets extremely hot. So hot that I unplug it at night out of fear it will start a fire or blow the router. Anyone heard of a power cable and/or adaptor combo that works well with this setup?

I have the same problem where my power light blinks using a power converter. In this state, the router does not work.
Has anyone had any luck finding a replacement power adapter for Europe. I'm specifically interested in the UK.
To solve this problem with my wireless router, I bought the same kind on ebay. I can't even find the Linksys router there.

I would say goto a local electonics store and buy a AC/DC converter with an appropate end to it. The Router plug end is generic 6mm DC plug I think.. The only thing to look for is to make sure that no matter what the input for the AC adapter is that the output is 12VDC, 1 AMP.. NO MORE or your'll burn your router.. I have one for my other linksys router but I forget where I got it.. I think I found it online somewhere..

sorry guys..

Hi,

I saw a post on this forum that someone's router got burnt since he used a convertor. I agree with "epwatson" that go to a local electronics store & check with someone who has knowledge about the stuff & get the right convertor for it. It's better than trying something & blowing the router.

Hello " input1" I would appreciate if you would post what exactly you used in Asia after you find something.

Thanks
Anu

I am considering signing up for Vonage and plan to Use the service in Europe on business. This discussion concerns me though becasue I have terrible luck dealing with convertors etc.

Finding a 12v 1amp DC device seems like the best advice here but can anyone tell me if the Linsys router used by Vonage uses a standard power input or is it some wacky proprietary thing that I need to special order? I am hoping I can pick up a DC power supply 12v 1amp 220-240 input at my local 'radio shack' in Copenhagen.

Thanks a lot!

I have just spent hours with Vonage tech support trying to configure my router in France.
Yes, when Vonage/Linksys reconfig the new p supplies they made them 110 specific.
Craziness.
Here is the possible solution:
buy a UK version of the power supply-
Model number is DV 1280 - 3 UK
Then yu have a 220 to 12V transfomer p supply that works, and all U need is an adaptor for the country you're in.
Pls let me know if this works.

Thnx

DR
