I bought a router off of eBay and the seller forgot to include the power supply. Could someone please tell me the WRT54GS v2 ( serial number prefix CGN3 ) power supply specifications? Looking for output voltage, amps, and polarity please. Thanks!
I have a new factory replacement power supply for that unit if you're interested. $15 total will ship it in the US. Let me know if you're interested...PM me here or e-mail me: abessey(at)runbox(dot)com _________________ Clear 4G Wimax.

Before I go out and buy a replacement adapter, is the WRT54GS power adapter the same as the one for the BEFW11S4? I am temporarily using a neighbor's old router at my apartment but I won't be there until Monday. If the adapters are the same, it'll save me a few dollars.
Apparently, they both use the same power supply according to their respective user guides. I'll double check my neighbor's BEFW11S4 power adapter with the specifications that redhawk0 provided, just to be sure. Thanks for the help, guys!
The BEF uses a 5 volt 2 amp power supply. I'd also bet it has a 2.5mm plug instead of a 2.1 and will not fit into the WRT's power inlet. The 5 volt unit will power up the 12 volt WRT, but it won't work properly. You need a 12 volt, 1 amp power supply with a 2.1mm center positive plug. Like I said, I have the factory replacements or aftermarket replacements for a bit less ($12 shipped for the aftermarket units).
Why not just have the person you bought it from on ebay send you the correct power supply? I'd demand it, personally.
Checked the power supply last night on the BEFW11S4 v4 and it has an output of 12V DC 1000mA. The barrel connector was the same size as the power adapter for my WRT54G v1.1 as well so I decided to try it with my WRT54GS v2. Now I'm running v24 RC3! :)
Thanks for your help, guys!
I did request that the eBay seller send me the power adapter, but I really don't care anymore. I can't argue with getting a WRT54GS for $32 (shipping included)!
