Posting with no punctuation makes reading and understanding your problem unnecessarily difficlut.

Is the desktop connected to the Homeplug by ethernet or is it wireless.

If wireless what wireless connection is in the desktop i.e. PCI or USB

ps Expect the FE to move this thread to the Helproom

I am not making myself clear.

Do you run a cable from the homeplug to your desktop computer or is it wireless?

Carnoustiejim - sometimes problems can arise from the silliest things. Are you sure that the wall sockets for both homeplug units are switched on?
