Home Plug Connection

Does anybody out there know if Devolo Home Plug will work OK if plugged into a 2way adaptor or 2 way split extension lead?
Their site says it will work perfectly if plugged into an extension lead (providing its not surge protected) but there is nothing about using a 2 way one or adaptors.
I have only a single socket in the room where I want to local my router (adjacent to the phone master socket) and like an idiot I forgot that the router needs a socket to plug into as well as the Home Plug needing one.
Any help appreciated - I've got a new toy and cannot use it.

The illustration on their site shows the plug alongside a Double mains socket, so it should work from an adapter or a extension lead.
