cm700 Modem & ac2300 Router

OK so stupid me....had router issues and had to disconnect modem & router (new router on the way).  After I unhooked everything, I realized the power adapters were different -- the rectangular "prong part" the goes into the outlet were a bit different...one was a little larger than the other & now I'm at a loss about which is which!  I did call support & the gentleman had me read the serial number from the power adapter & confirmed that the smaller one was for the router.  He seemed a bit hesitant & I'm just trying to confirm.  Can't find info anywhere.  So I'm giving you your "lol" for the day...anyone have a clue?

ac2300 is not a reliable guide to model number. Many devices come with an AC tag, but it is essentially a label that Netgear, and other brands, attach to hardware to describe wifi speeds.

 

R7000P is Netgear's main, maybe only, ac2300 router.

 

If this is a Netgear router, then it will almost certainly have the same power needs as your modem, although the "amps" may differ.

 

They are all 12-volt devices. (I have a box of old adapters.)

 

Nothing special about Netgear's adapters. Essentially industry standard.

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V

You can go to this ste and put in the model nnumber to get manuals for your Netgear devices..

In this case I went to your cm700 modem user guide and found that it takes a 12volt 1amp power adapter. Here is link to that info.

> [...] Can't find info anywhere. [...]

 

   Did you look at the devices themselves?  Can you see the ratings
("V", "A", ...)?  It should not be too tricky to match an adapter with
its corresponding gizmo.  The non-psychics here typically can't see
what's printed on your power adapters, so, if you're still lost, then
you might need to provide some of that info.

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for the
power adapter ratings under "Technical Specifications".  Those should
agree with what's printed on the device label.

 

   Note that "AC2300" is a speed, not a model number.  Look at the
product label for that, too.
