I currently have a "wireless phone jack" in my house (Phonex Px-211). I need to get better networking to the family room for the PS3 (its 11g wireless signal is fairly weak).

I presume that the phone jack uses the power line for transmission. Will this interfere with using a powerline networking product?

Edit: Actually, now that I look over the (fairly vague!) product page, it looks like these phone jacks may transmit at FM frequencies. If that's the case, nevermind.

Edit 2: Sorry for posting this in the wrong forum; I was thinking about another post and accidentally dropped this one in the wrong place.

Phoneline extenders and homeplug networking use entirely different methods. They should keep clear of each other.
