UK Devolo has said it will not work because the router must be connected to a specific plug from a starter kit. Tech support in Germany has said that it will work & that I can connect the single wireless plug to the router, & use the 2 starter kit plugs in the other rooms to connect to the computers.
Any devolo Homeplug experts on here want to take a stab at who is correct.
Devolo Single Wireless Plug
Devolo Starter Kit (Non Wireless)
The reasons for the weird setup are thus. The wireless starter kit is designed upside down with the wires coming out of the top. This will not work with the plug sockets in my living & bedroom. The only socket which will take the upside down wireless plug without a problem is the one next to the router in the hallway.
P.S For all the pedants who want to interrogate & mock my desired setup & demand a schematic of my wiring & photos of each socket. Or offer 'helpful' alternatives & generally derail the thread. Please don't!!!!!!!!!
I will not enter into a debate on my plug socket positions requests for photos or 'why don't you get an electrician/builder in etc'. I'll simply ignore you.
