Router Power Supply

Hello everyone,

I found an (old) 3Com OfficeConnect Remote 812 ADSL Router, but i seem
to have lost the power supply. I couldn't find any pinouts as to what
volatage goes where, and have no clue how to test it for that. All i
know is that it has a -12, +12 and +5 volt power inpute, and theat the
power port looks like a mini-Din 8 port:

___ __
/+ + + \
|+ + + |

Sorry for my bad ASCII art, but the pluses are the places where the
connectors plug in, and there is a notch on the bottm left and bottm
right, as well as in the top center.

Help would be enourmously appreciated.

Not only has 3com discontinued that item, but the places that used to
sell aftermarket 3com parts such as power adapters have also
discontinued their stocking of such parts.

I have no idea why a ps for a 'simple' device would have so many pins.
