So I've got a standard wifi router which is connected to a mains power extender (generally brilliant). Essentially this transmits the data through the power line to a plug downstairs which distributes the data (but over a different SSID). This works fine for getting internet access downstairs.
Issue I'm having is that when connected to this power extender (for example on my nexus 7) I can't seem to communicate with other devices on the network (specifically I can't SSH into my raspberry pi - I can SSH into it when I'm using a device connected to the main wifi router).
Anyone got any idea of what is going on?

Well it'd help to know a bit more, like some more details about the layout - to clarify, you have two routers? Or do you mean the single router is connected to a mains extender over ethernet, also provides wireless and also is the internet gateway?
Either way, itt should be fairly easy to identify the location of the problem. Clearly you can access the internet. The raspberry pi can (presumably?) access the internet. So the problem is with routing the request correctly.
If it's a single router, is the router isolating the wired and wireless networks from each other? E.g. if you connect your computer directly via ethernet to the router, can you ping the raspberry pi?

OP - if you could give us the following details about each network device, that'd be good:
