PostPosted: Tue Sep 20, 2005 10:54 am    Post subject: Does the RTP300 support 110-240 V? Reply with quote Back to top

I am looking to purchase a PAP2 adapter to replace my RT31P2 because I can't use the router when I travel to Europe.

Now that the RTP300 is available, I was wondering if it would be a better replacement.

Does anyone know if the AC/DC adapter on the RTP300 supports 110 to 240 V input?

Thanks!

Looking at my RTP300 power adapter, it says 120VAC so you'd need a transformer for 220/240V.

I don't believe any of the Linksys adapters/routers support 230v. Your best bet is to buy a power supply when you get to your destination country, as it'll be far less expensive and probably higher quality than what's available in the US for it.

I'm wondering why you're interested in buying another adapter... the RT31P2 and PAP2 are the same exact voice unit on the inside and the RT31P2's router capabilities can be disabled so it can essentially become a PAP2 with a 3 port switch on it.

Thanks for the info!

The reason I'm considering a PAP2 is to eliminate the need to purchase a new adapter when I arrive in Sweden.

The only unit I've been able to find over there does 12V AC, not 12V DC (like the linksys transformer).

I'm afraid of frying my unit with the wrong transformer.

While I'm at it, does anyone know if a 12V AC supply would hurt a device made to receive a 12V DC current?

Also, the smaller footprint of the PAP2 is nice. The RT31P2 takes up a lot of room considering it's used exactly like a PAP2.

Thanks!

Hi, the unit definitely needs to have a different power supply. I'm living in Europe at the moment on a work assignment and had to get an proper converter. Don't take the risk with the cheaper converters either! I smoked my old Linksys because the step down adapter was crap...Got a decent unit now and all is well, after having to send the unit back to the states and wait for the family to send the replacement to me after Vonage sent it. Ugh!

I just got a new RTP300 and took it to Europe. Silly me, I forgot about it not being auto-sensing and I plugged it in without a transformer. Well, at least it wasn't yet attached to the RTP300.

So now I am in Bangkok and was about to go shopping for a new power adapter, when I discovered that the adaptor for my Maxtor OneTouch disk drive had the same DC specs as the Linksys phone router - and was auto-sensing dual voltage as well. So I plugged it in, and voila, it works.

Now I need to get a new adapter for the disk drive; Maxtor has them available from their web site:
http://www.maxstore.com/product.asp?sku=2432092
The downside it that it costs $50. But it is heavy-duty, and it definitely works well. I wouldn't try putting 12VAC into the RTP300.

The web site states "Provides grounded three-prong connection (U.S. only) to AC power." It doesn't state dual-sensing anywhere. I am confused since the details on the web site doesn't give any specs.

Is the power cord dual-sensing but all it needs is an adapter-plug (not converter) for the appropriate plug for the foreign country?

Did you purchase your power adapter from this web site or locally in Bangkok?

Would you be able to post the specs for the power cord so that I can ensure that I get the right one? I plan to use the RTP300 in India (normal AC current is 220v-240v there).

Thanks!

Well, you are right about the lack of details on the web site. It does say a grounded three-prong connection, but the picture on the site shows a two-prong plug, and the one I have has a two-prong plug. If your outlet has a different form factor, then you would need to supply an adapter-plug.

And I can't tell you what exactly the replacement power supply would be, since I have not yet ordered one myself. I just assumed it would be the same. It would certainly have to have similar output specs. So far I have not yet run the disk drive, since I am using the power adapter for my phone router. I may look around here to see if I can find one for less $$.

So here's the specs on the power adapter that came with the Maxtor drive (which I bought online in the States last December).

Brand: DVE switching power supply (made in China)
Model: DSA-0421S-122 36
Input: 100-240V 50/60 Hz 1.2A
Output: DC+12V 3A

(The original Linksys RTP300 power adapter is only rated 1A output, so this one is probably overkill. But it doesn't hurt to have some extra capacity.)

$50 is WAY too much to pay for one of these things. Take a look at the VM-88 for $12.99 on this webpage. Specs are:

» Universal AC/DC Adaptor
» Maximum Load: 1800mA
» Selectable output voltage: 3.0 / 4.5 / 6.0 / 7.5 / 9.0 / 12.0V
» “LED” indicator.
» 6 Detachable Plugs

It doesn't clearly say it'll run on both 110 and 220, but if you click on the picture to enlarge, you can read the specs on the unit which say "Input 110/220 V AC 60/50 Hz".

you can also try this one:

http://www.dvdoverseas.com/store/index.html?catalog12_0.html
the 1000ma-SS105.

i use it on my rt31p2 here in the states, and will take it to sweden this winter.

it has a switch on the back to specify 110v or 220v input.

since it works with the 110v input, it should work fine with the 220v.
