It might be worth re-posting this without reference to awest3.

The only plugs that connect to the mains are for power and on one side are three-pin (usually into a wall socket or extension lead from a wall socket) and the other side can vary depending on the hardware requirements.

The next stage is to have an ethernet cable between the router and the PC in place.

Then turn on the PC, wait until it is fully up and running, then power-up the router and re-post here any problems.

The plugs which we were talking about in the original thread have ethernet connections at the rear, the idea is that you plug one into the mains by the TV and run an ethernet cable from the rear of the plug into the ethernet socket on the tv. Then you plug another into the mains by the router and run an ethernet cable to the router. They then communicate through the mains house wiring. I decided to run an ethernet cable directly from the TV to the router just to test it and it worked ok...now I have to hide the wiring somehow...might still end up with these plugs..hope this helps..
