Nighthawk x6s ac3000 (power adaptor available with AU plug?)

Hoping someone can help?

I just purchased a Nighthawk x6s ac3000 Router from eBay from America still waiting for its arrival.  

 

I have looked in the user manual to determine the power adaptor and determined it is 19v 3.16a and 50Hz. Instead of converting the US to AU power adaptor with a converter I was wondering if these power adaptors can be purchased with an AU plug?

 

I am struggling to find one on line but can find some laptop power adaptors with same output. Prefer to use original power adaptor. Is this a possibility if I am unable to get an AU power adaptor?

 

look forward to any feedback.

   None of that is a model number.  Look for "Model" on the product
label.

   "R7900P" is a model number.  (Is it yours?)

   Don't confuse input characteristics ("50Hz") with output
characteristics ("19V/3.16A").  The router cares only about the
asapter's output.

   Netgear buys them; Netgear doesn't make them.  You should be able to
buy one, too.  Netgear doesn't sell parts.


> [...] Prefer to use original power adaptor. [...]

 

   Define "original".  Same as Netgear buys?  ebay.com.au?

 

   I'd look for an adapter with the desired input characteristics and
connector, and the desired output characteristics and connector.
Seeking "original" might be a lost cause.
