The last time I bought something from a Maplin shop that wasn't in stock at
the shop they ordered it at the warehouse and I got it next day, P&P free.
Just looking at my Rapid cat. which arrived today, they do a 2.4 amp 5
volt SMPS wall wart for 12.20 - 85-1802.
Thanks to Andrew for the tip - they seem much cheaper than RS and Maplin
for my 'benchmarks'.

My router has the same spec supply. The adapter says "FPS013" on it and can
be found here:
The pdf brochure has specs (mine is a large 3-pin adapter, slightly smaller
than the small 3-pin adapter !), and there is contact info on the page. See
if they can supply or put you in touch with someone who can.
Never appeal to his better nature. He may not have one.
What about the supplier?
Netgear routers usually have 2 (or 3) years warranty on the PSU, and 5
years on the kit. I had one PSU blow recently, they swapped it without
question under warranty - shipped a new one without requiring the old
one back. I think these are designed to blow!
If you've got a spare socket there'll be 5.5 V at that sort of current
from your PC power-supply. I've run 6V bike headlight bulbs from PC
PSU's quite happily.
