My brother gave me a DI-704 DSL/Cable switch, but he
has lost the power supply for it.

I download a PDF spec sheet, and checked several sites
with info on it, and they all indicate it needs a 5v 2A
power supply.

I then looked closer at the sticker underneath the unit, and
it says it uses 5v 1A.

One of the reviews I looked at said the thing worked good, but
ran hot enough to fry an egg on.

Is it possible that the 2v in the spec sheets is an error and this
thing only needs 1v ?

I have the same router, works great, doesn't get hot. In fact its barely warm to the touch. The power supply is a Proton SPR-218L-05, 5V-2.5A. Hope this helps. On a further note I run only two comps through it, however they are on 24/7, folding don't you know.

It is 5v, the amperage doesnt matter, as long as the power supply can supply atleast as much as it costs. You could run it off the 5v line in your computer (you probably wouldnt want to, but it would work) which is probably 20 or 30 amps. Any 5v more than 2a powersupply (check radio shack) will work.
