How to fix power issue in belkin router?

I have a Belkin N150 F9K1009zb Router. I always switch all my equipment off at night so I did last night as well. But this morning, it would not come on again when I flicked the switch on the power socket. I changed the power adaptor but problem is same. Then I used an adaptor with 12v output instead of the 9v that belongs to the router. Then all the lights came on and the thing seemed to work again. It is clearly not the adaptor that is broken but something inside the router does no longer work with a 9v adaptor but does work with a 12v adaptor. Should I keep using the 12v adaptor, have the router fixed or just buy a new one?
