Highway Robbery!!

 I am currently enrolled in school online and my internet connection is a must!!  Anyway, last night we were having storms in our area.  The modem wasn't working.  The power light kept flashing red.  So this morning I called the phone company.  The first time I called, by the time the service tech got on the phone, the modem had straightened up because I had been rebooting it, so I thought our problem was solved.  Well about an hour or so later, the same thing started happening again.  So I called the phone company back.  After being on hold for 25 minutes, they determined that it was my power cord and that I needed to go to my local Radio Shack and get a new power cord.  So I went up there and got a power cord.  Guess how much it was?  45 DOLLARS!!!  My husband asked why I didn't just go to Walmart and I couldn't think of an answer LOL  I thought I had to get one at the store the phone company told me to go to LOL  Tomorrow I am going to check Walmart and see what they have and i I find the cord, I wonder if I can return the other one to Radio Shack....

Yes you can return it if you have your receipt.

 Has anyone else experienced this problem?  If so, where did you get your power cord at?
