I am so bad with electronics...I am going to ask just to be sure.

My router is designed for 12V, 1A supply as written in the casing. The 12V power adapter is missing but I have a 14V, 0.8A adapter with me. 14V isn't too much for a router that accepts 12V, is it?

Within 10% you'll usually get away with it.
Too much and you'll blow it.
If in doubt, don't use it. New routers are cheap.

New routers are cheap.

Cheap if you personally own it. If it belongs to the school, not so cheap...hahaha!

Thanks. :)
