My router is upstairs in the office also which is a netgear as for some unknown reason i like Netgear stuff.
I have a Homeplug in the office upstairs and this conects to the router through Ethernet connection [comes with Homeplug] I then have the other Homeplug downstairs in main plug socket behind television.
I then have this linked into the Ethernet switch which allows you to then add up to 4 other things using just the 2 homeplugs.
You could use just the 2 and keep disconnecting the playstation 3 and talking the Homeplug over to where your laptop is if you dont mind doing this ?
I have the xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 linked through ethernet cables into the Ethernet switch with the option of adding anything else such as a laptop if required.
If your happy with connecting your laptop by your playstation then all is fine and dandy,if not your going to need 4 Homeplugs.
Please remember that Homeplugs need to go direct into the electricity supply for them to work correctly [So you need Plug sockets] they do not work through extension cables and are not recommended .
Tell you Swanny for getting a Adsl connection to anywhere in the house they are brilliant.
