Finding an adapter for an old Roku.

Posted by Xavier Ashe on December 1, 2012

I have an older Roku, an N1000. It’s only 720p and no WiFi.  I dug it out once I freed up my Ethernet over power adapters. Now want some streaming love in my bedroom. Unfortunately, I could not find the power adapter! I dug through my big box of extra adapters, but nothing was 5v and 2A. I went to Radio Shack to see what they had. They wanted $45 for the adapter kit!! Can you believe that?! I’m not sure this Roku is even worth that much.

I hit the interwebs and was happy to find a D-Link AF1205-B Power Adapter DC 5V 2A 120V for only $9. I got it today, and it works!  So if you are looking for a power adapter for a Roku N1000, the D-Link adapter is the winner!
