For FREE you mean??

Nope. Prepared to pay

Are you sure it's 5v? all the dlink routers here run on 12v AC

Its a DI-524. Says on the bottom 5v/2a
I've got a 12v/2a here, but don't wanna run that much through it :)

Is it ac (???) or dc (???)

OP, I have found these hard to come by and can't offer you one, I need the two I have acquired, but I can suggest trying your local recycling centre at the tip assuming you have one out your way and they still accept computer equipment. Until a few months ago the Wellington tip recycling centre took routers/modems and all manner of other computer equipment and were my usual haunt when hunting down ac adaptors at cheap prices ($2-3 usually). Now that they aren't taking computer equipment anymore its slim pickings these days. HTH
