Linksys Wireless WRT54g Power Supply Question
Posted on 2008-11-13
Thanks in advance to anyone who can respond quickly to this!
I have a Linksys Wireless WRT54g Router, but during a recent move, I have accidentally "misplaced" the original power supply for it. The manufacture specs show it normally has a 12VDC - 1A power supply.
My question is that I have another power supply sitting around with the same connector to fit the router, its 12V also, the problem is it is 2.5A instead of 1A. Someone told me the Amp rating isn't a significant factor as long as it is pushing AT LEAST what the spec requirement is, so would it be safe to use this power supply instead of buying a new one??? Or is there a risk that it could "burn" the router out fairly quickly?
Thanks again for any answers!!!
