I want to get internet on my computer by Ethernet cable. I don't want to use extender for Ethernet. I just want to connect internet straight from my router. My router on my living room and computer on my bedroom. How do I get internet without running messy Ethernet cable from living room to bedroom.

A powerline connection has nothing to do with WiFi.

1. Ethernet. Much preferred. Most reliable, and fastest.
A Cat5e cable from your router direct to your PC.

2. Powerline devices.
Router----short Cat5e--Powerline device------house wiring-----2nd powerline device---Cat5e to the PC

3. MOCA. Similar to powerline, but uses the house coax wiring instead of the house electrical

4. WiFi. At some point between your router and your PC, the signal is pushed out over a radio signal.
Generally slowest and less reliable

It will be hard without going through the ceilings with one...
I suggest getting a powerline connector from TP-Link or similar brands. They usually work well.

1. Creative wiring with a long Cat5e cable.
2. Powerline devices.
3. MOCA devices, if your house is fully wired with coax
4. There is no #4

Currently I plugged in an tp link range extender in my bedroom and get internet through Ethernet from extender. I noticed that my 2.4g WiFi network is slower than before but my computer gives me good speed. So does powerline slows your WiFi too or not? I think range extender slows my wifi down by 50%
