Powerline ethernet problems

As the title says, I am having problems with my powerline adaptors dropping the internet connection to my two folding computers. When I originally put them in they worked without any configuration and were stable for over a month. Since I rebuilt the woman's computer two days ago, they have been dropping out multiple times per day. I have tried snooping around in the router settings but I do not know what I am doing so I pretty much left the settings alone. So far, only unplugging and replugging the powerline adaptors starts everything again. Any ideas? ( I have googled this to no satisfaction)

One thing I know about those poweline ethernet dealies is they have to be on the same phase or they have major problems this isn't normally a problem for a house though. Are they plugged directly into the wall or are you running them through a battery back up or hardcore power bar? Multiple power bars? You might try using a different power bar or plugging them in a different way?

Plugging in different spots did not help, I swapped out the router to see if it is causing the problems.....:blarg:

lemmie know man... cuz the whole powerline thing would be nice. There is a lot of copper simply being wasted in most homes and to utilize it would be great. I know I could use it for a few things.

The weird thing is that it worked great until I upgraded my wife's computer. Sometimes things fail at at the same time as another event happens and that may be what is going on here. The router I am using now seems to be holding things together better, I hope it was the problem. I suspect it was somehow causing the powerline adaptors to lose their connection also. Time will tell.

Doublecheck the motherboard's ethernet settings, in regards to "Allow Windows to shut down the component when not in use". It's inside the Adapter's settings, in Device Manager.
