Any wireless routers that come with a 100-240v power adapter?

Just noticed that my Linksys router is only rated for 120VAC. So I guess I need to buy a step down power converter or a different router to use overseas. Considering the price of a step down converter is nearly as much as my Linksys router, I'm thinking it might make more sense just to buy a new router...assuming there is one that would work internationally. I would then only need a $3 plug adapter. Any brands that will work?

Your Linksys just has a DC powerpack no? 9v or 12v input I think. That's the way mine was anyway. When I moved to Australia I just went to the local electronics store and picked up a new DC pack for $15.

Yep...so thats what you can do...just get a new powerpack. I got one that allows you to select the output volatage. 4.5, 5, 6, 9, 12, etc... and they make them for all different amperages. It has a selection of power tips that fit the different power input sizes.

Well...I don't think ratshack is going to have a 240v model. Best to buy it at your destination. Something similar to this is what I bought in Australia. http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView...=&SUBCATID=521
