What is being questioned is the power supply that supplies DC power to the scout. Some people refer to them as "wall warts." They convert your line power (US = 120 Volts AC) into a DC voltage that the scout requires. Did you use the same power supply for both of the deceased scouts? Can you test the DC power output that it produces?

Different power supply for both.
I don't have the means to test it that I am aware of.

Did you disconnect the phone company's line at the demark box (assuming no DSL on the same line)? Even when you have no service from your local telco, they likely still have voltage on the line - maybe in your case it's excessive, or the Scout received a voltage spike. Just throwing out ideas, it does seem odd you would have two Scouts fail in the same way so close together.
