    I was recently given a used square airport extreme router by a friend. However, it is missing the power cord that attaches to the power supply (which I have). Where is a good place to purchase one of these? Does anyone have a reputable source for Apple parts? Do you think Fry's or Radio Shack would have a generic cord that will work? I would prefer to buy from a brick & mortar store if possible (in case the cord doesn't work), but will buy online if I have to.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's just the figure-8 plug, right? IIRC those are called C7 plugs; you'll be able to find them in RadioShack or the equivalent.

    check a printer or a radio. sometimes they use the same cords.

    another fun fact about these cords is that you can use them in place of the duck head on a macbook(/pro) power brick to makea psudo extension cable.
