    I picked up a new TP-Link gigabit router when I was in China to replace that crap ZTE H298a provided by my ISP. I had a nice TP-Link 1750ac router, but when I was upgraded from 100Mbs to 150MBS I found out the 1750Mbps router is actually limited by 100M ports.

    So, my question is: Can I use the ZTE 12V 1.5A adapter instead of the TP-Link 12V 1A adapter with a universal adapter (US/China plug). Google suggest yes, but I want to double check.

    Check if the polarity on the barrel plug matches - there should be these symbols somewhere on the adapters (or devices):

    or if you have multimeter - just measure it.

    The left is the TP-Link US adapter and the right is the ZTE UK adapter I want to use.
    From what I can tell the voltage and polarity both match.
    If you click the images they get bigger.

    I should have posted images in the OP but I didn't think about it until later.
