IMHO you can use any 19V (common between displays, laptop power supplies, and many universal can do) that can provide more or equal to 1.75A, but you need to make sure connector same and polarity inside connector same too.

I need to make sure the amp is 1.75 no?
More could burn the router?

No, it is stating max possible power that this supply can output, by design, without issues.
Using less rating might make power supply overheat or choke, but more will not harm, as device usually takes as much as it wants only.

The only exception in such cases is constant current devices, for example some rare LED drivers where they state voltage range, but fixed power, or some heating elements and etc. But never digital electronic devices.

Ok
I found a 12v 3a 36w power adapter with same size of plug, so less voltage but more amp making it 3w more than the stock 33w power supply, what do you think?

Re: Searching for Asus power adapter

So an universal adapter with  selectable 19v should work?

Yes
But keep attention on polarity. Usually barrel plug - center positive, but some vendors make crazy opposite...
