Power Adapter For BEFSR41

Ok so I recently bought a Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL Router Model BEFSR41. I need a power supply. All the power supplys I find dont have the 3 prong female end. On the back of my router I have a 3 prong power port. On the bottom of my router it says BEFSR41B. I googled a power supply for that one but I cant find the 3 prong power supply. Can someone tell me where I can buy a power adapter for the 3 prong port. The adapter would need to have an end with a 3 femal prongs shaped in a triangle.

I'm confused because the power jack is typically circular as shown below. Maybe the power supply transformer has a 3 prong 110VAC jack but that would be a separate cable and could be hard to find. It might be easier to just replace the whole power supply in this case.

Yes all the power cordes I have found are just the circualr ones. Do you know where I could find a cord for my router.

The Uplink verbiage and 3 pronged power connector lead me to believe this isn't actually a Linksys product. Please provide a screenshot of the product label.

Thanks for the pics it's definitely a Linksys product Smiley LOL

 

Sorry AFAIK Linksys doesn't sell power supplies separately and since this isn't a standard power jack I think you won't be able to easily find a replacement.

Re: Power Adapter For BEFSR41

I have one of the BEFSR41 V2 models and it has the upload link as well.  But it has the round power adapter.  I have been trying to find out what voltage and polatiry is supposed to go in there.  The 'specs' say 12v AC but that is the Only mention of any voltage.  Maybe it was a typo and should say 120 vac but again...  Can someone tell me please, what their power output on their plug states?  like 12v dc or maybe 12 vac and how many amps or watts.
