    I'm hoping this modem is salvageable. I grabbed the wrong A/C adapter and proceeded to plug it in. The lights just did a quick blink and I heard a faint "zap". then it was dead. I did not smell any burnt electronics either.

    The proper A/C adapter is a 120-60Hz to 12vDC 1000mA - the one i used is 24VAC 1300mA

    they both look the same, only the labels are different, I'm a little pi$$ed at myself lol...

    I dont have a multimeter handy either, just off the top of anyones head, what would be the blown component? a simple capacitor?
