We currently use a very old Devolo powerline system with a wired router. We are going to upgrade to a newer powerline to increase the speed available to us. My question is: most of the powerline technical stuff says they are for routers using wifi. But as the powerline systems connect to the router with an ethernet cable anyway, does it matter at all that we have a wired rather than a wireless router?
Secondly, if we are fine to use our current wired router with the new systems, can we create a wifi hotspot if we buy a powerline with that capability?
Sorry if these are really simple questions, but I have been to two stores with these questions and to be frank, their answers have been rubbish: 'its a grey area' or 'you will have to buy a wireless router because everyone has one these days'.
