I have an Alcatel Speed Touch Home dsl modem (Part number CP000582533, Model
3EC18204BCAA03) for use with my Bellsouth DSL service. Unfortunately I have lost the power supply / AC adapter for the device. Does anyone have the power requirements for that modem so I can buy a "generic" adapter, or better yet, know where I can buy a replacement power adapter quickly?
Thanks for the reply! One of the "unknowns" is what voltage and current requirements that the modem has, in order to pick out a power supply adapter. I am guessing it is 12 VDc, and "not too much" current required and I may have to simply go on that basis.
I have sent an e-mail thru the Bellsouth Fast Access web site, but my experience has been that you usually have to talk to a person on the phone to be sure that you are getting through, and my attempt at doing that with Bellsouth phone support did not seem to indicate that I was getting their attention. But I have found that the responses vary depending on the time of day. Maybe I need to try again.
Wonder if it is a bad sign that the Bellsouth News Server is "down" here and I had to go to Google?? LOL
You can connect directly to these newsgroups with this link. It will open Outlook Express. Use the second line for instruction on how to set it up. news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windowsxp.general
Thanks for the info! Do you know what the polarity is on the power supply tip that plugs into the modem?
Also, in the back of my mind I seem to remember the modem "power" light not being on unless it is connected to the computer. Is that right? I hope so! LOL I tried today with a power adapter set for 9 volts and negative polarity on the plug, but nothing "lit up".
