    I have a computer in my room, and a router and modem downstairs, at the opposite ends of the house.

    To connect my computer to the internet, I have in place a netgear usb wifi adapter, as I don't have a wifi card in my computer.

    However, I also have this in my possession:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-P...d_sim_sbs_ce_2

    What those things do is basically wire my computer up using ethernet cables, but using the wiring in the mains.


    Both of these products work fine, and I have used them both independently. The speed of each isn't great, but it'll get me by.

    I was wondering, is there any way I can get an internet connection from both of these methods simultaneously, possibly making a quicker connection?
    And what happens if both the ethernet cable, and the usb wifi card are in at the same time?

    Thanks in advance, Charlie.

    The wired connection (with the ethernet) should override the wireless connection. There's no way that you can connect using them both simultaneously though.
