  • Actually they will.
    I have two connected in my home and BOTH are connected to the mains with 4 way extensions.
    Speed may be a little slower but massively faster than wifi.

  • No. Extension leads dilute and distort the signal so much that it would not be detectable by the second adapter. Better purchase would be one with a built in AC plug.

    Yes they will work but they will be EXTREMELY SLOW, i would recommend that you plug both directly into the wall socket to maximise performance! thats what i have done and they work just fine :) hope this helps.
