hey guys im in need of 3 power cables for some 2513 router. Any idea of where to get them? I tried ebay but cant find any. I made the mistake of buying some routers and they came without the power cables.


Thanks for the help

    Do the 2513s require something special? All my 25xx routers use the same type of power cables that PCs use. http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10228

    It's a DC power supply right? You just need a regular power cable such as those meant for a desktop power supply. Here's a picture of what it looks like:

    The AC and DC power supplies are two different animals. That's the correct cable for the AC Power Supply (yeah -- just a regular run of the mill PC Power cord -- also available overpriced at your local Radio Shack store in an emergency).

    It's best to avoid the DC power versions for a home lab -- unless you're an old telecom person and have a DC power source in your basement. :D

    Check out this link on Replacing AC and DC Power Supplies in Cisco 2500 Series Routers (if the IMG links don't work) http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/2500/hardware/notes/25xxpwr.html

    Funny about the post here.....



    I was milling around in the junk pile recently at work and found some old 48VDC telecom supplies that are rackable. I thought hmmm.... I could use one of these and switch all of my gear out to -48VDC! :o


    Just remember in a -48VDC system you must have the ground connection on the PSU bonded to the rack bonding bar which then must be bonded back to the system ground.



    It really is a lot more work for places that do not have the correct electrical plant configured pre-existing.

    Yeah, I was aware of the difference, my mistake for calling it a DC power supply....and thanks for the description of both!
