    Here's the planned setup I want for my house:

    - Hallway: Wifi router connected to phone line (still on ADSL, can't get better yet!)
    - Living room: TV with HDR1000S (yet to be purchased)
    - Upstairs front room: Windows PC (currently connected to router via wifi)
    - Upstairs back room: Xbox360 (currently connected to router via wifi bridge)

    I want to connect these all up together so that:
    - All can access the Wifi router in the hallway
    - The HDR1000S and Xbox360 can access films/music off the PC
    - Connection is more reliable than just using Wifi dongles on HDR1000S/PC/Xbox

    Someone suggested that a TP Link might work (TP Link TL-PA210 White | Twin Pack Powerline Kit | Richer Sounds but can I connect 3 devices together like this?

    Thanks

    Cheers. Will I also be able to access files on the PC from devices that connect to the network using wifi (as opposed to the TP-Link?).

    I think it's called "layer 2" in the network.

    The switch would be a good idea for the TV area as I'll probably have a few devices that need to connect.
