    I plan to buy a WRT54G wireless router, and use it in different countries, so my question is if the power adapter that comes with the router supports input voltage of 220 V ?

    Note, I'll buy the router from US, so anyone in the states who have this router can just tell me :)

    The power adapter that comes with the WRT54G US is a 120v 60 hertz adapter. You should buy a non US unit.

    Or just buy the US version, and later when in Europe (?) buy a powersupply with an 12V 1A DC output at an electronics store.

    I saw a warning in the router documentation from using other power adapters, and not using the original one.

    Be careful taking technology out of the country. It is illegal in some cases especially with computer stuff.

    The wrt54g v1 and v2 and v2.2 are 110 v.
    While the v3 and v4 are compatible with both voltage.

    Can anyone confirm ?

    also what about the WRT54GC ? Do you recommend it ? I think it works with the 220 v. Can anyone cofirm ?.

    The WRT54GC comes with a 110-230v -to- 3.3v at 2A power supply in the US.

    At least mine did.

    Hope it helps.
