WAP54G Power Supply

    A recent brown-out in our community zapped the life out of the 5V 2.5A wall-wart power supply for my WAP54G. I have an old 5V 2A power supply from some other device, and wondered if this would be sufficient or if I really needed the extra .5A of current? Anyone know the answer?

    it should work, if it's underpowered it's not going to do anything bad if you try it, worst case it won't work, I doubt that linksys box pulls 2.5a on a regular basis if ever anyway.

    considering that a WRT draws 1.2 amps at 5 volts, a WAP should draw around the same amount of power, which makes a 2amp P/S more than enough to power it. And as Guyfromhe said, the worst it can do is not work, it won't break anything.

    not 12V 1A?
    since the supplied power adaptor does not support 220V (it's 110V), then I use 15V 1A auto volt power adaptor
    it works perfectly with either WRT54G and WAP54G
    generally, a 12V 1A power adaptor should have no problem

    WAP54G / WAP 11 Psu's

    I've got a WAP54G V1, it needs a 5V psu, it blew up last week, so I searched around for a spare - no joy, so I ordered a WAP 11 over the internet thinking that all WAP 11's also use 5V psu's. WRONG!, early WAP11's and WAP54G's use 5V, later ones use 12V, although they look the same from the outside and the plugs are the same.

    The part number of the PSU that expired was MS15-050102-LJ, I replaced it with a 5V 4A power supply from Maplins (in the UK), the Maplin part number is N92AT. MY WAP54G is now working again :) and I intend to use the WAP 11 in bridge mode.
