I'm using wifi right now on my computer and i can't /don't want to use LAN because it is too far and will not look tidy in my house.

From my research it has to be 1 circuit breaker.
i don't know that much about electricity .



as you can see from the image :
no. 1 turns on/off the power for my whole floor which consist both my computer and my modem/router
no.2 is for my room ( my computer )
no.3 is for my modem/router


Can you guys tell me if i can upgrade from Wi-fi to powerline adapter?

It is not usually the consumer unit that is significant but rather the whole circuit that is controlled via your electricity meter.


Providing the whole circuit is unbroken then a powerline adapter should work fine.

Yes, Paws is correct.  Depending on the quality of the wiring in your home, will depend on how well it works.  I personally use a tp-link powerline adapter and it works great.  you can start with the single powerline adapter kit and upgrade later if you want.

converting from wi-fi to powerline made a big difference to my media center setup.
