12V to 9V peripherals?

I'm organizing the space around my basement server, and since the server is on all the time, I'd like to use it to power some of the surrounding peripherals.
I've got a hub that uses 12V - no problem there tapping into the server's 12V line, but the DSL model and Linksys router take 9V wall warts. All three wall warts are roughly rated around 1 amp.

Is there a risk applying 12V to these items?

Maybe, probably not if they use wall worts. Or just build a regulator for them. It's very easy.
