BEFSX41 replacement power supplies

This may seem trivial, but I have Googled this for two days and can't get an answer I trust.
I have on hand some Linksys BEFSX41 routers which work fine, but the power supplies have burnt out.

I can't find a reliable source for a true replacement.

Someone please give me a link to a known good site.
Thank you

These routers I know for a fact are still being produced.  You may just try contacting a sales rep at linksys.  You have a part number on the PS?

you can purchase generic power supplies.  I believe that model uses a 12V 1000mA power supply.  Take the old power supply to radio shack and they should be able to give you a generic for about $20-$30.  

You need to make sure the voltage is the same, the mA (milliamps) is at LEAST the same, or greater, and the polarity is the same.  Polarity is either center-positive, or center-negative, and is determined by a graphic on the power supply,and likely the device.
will look kinda like this:
attached is image of center negative.
