Homeplug without use of ethernet cable?

Hi, Is it possible to extend your wireless network using home plug without an ethernet cable from the router?

I hoped you get a version of homeplug that can pickup the signal from the wireless network then repeat it via the homeplug.

You may ask why i dont use a wireless repeater, well its because the signal is going to my garage outside where i will be able to put a fused socket on each end of the supply for the homeplug.

Hope this makes sense. Cheers for any input!

No, the router has to be plugged into the router with an ethernet cable. You can have a wireless one at the other end to broadcast the signal. This setup is generally better than using a wireless 'booster' or repeater.
