Question

Is a phone jack needed?

You still need a phone jack with this to have wireless DSL, don't you? The desktop is in a room without a phone jack.

No, you don't need a phone jack. It runs through the electrical wiring, crazy as that may seem. You do need to be able to plug in an ethernet (CAT5) line, so either to your modem or through a router.

No, you don't. It works through your electrical wiring in your house. All you need is an outlet near your computer.

No you dont. Just a router to run the internet into and then to your PC. then one end of the adapters into the router, the other end straight into whatever you need internet on. The internet signal travels through your homes electrical circuit, thats all internet signal is anyway.

No. This needs to plug directly in to a wall outlet. You plug your DSL modem in to a router and then the router in to the base Powerline Ethernet Adapter unit. You plug the other Powerline Ethernet Adapter directly in to a wall outlet in the room where the PC is located. It does not require a phone jack.

One thing is that the Powerline Ethernet Adapter will not work plugged in to a power strip, both ends MUST be plugged directly in to a wall outlet. Learned this the hardway by spending about 30 minutes trying to get it to work in a power strip until I found the note in the instructions that advises you about direct outlet connection.

This unit runs through the electrical outlets. If you have a plug, you can get your internet through it. You connect 1 adapter to your router via ethernet and plug it into the outlet (can't plug it into a surge protector) and then you connect the other adapter to your laptop (via ethernet) and plug the other adapter into the outlet in the room you are using the laptop in.

The internet signal runs through your power lines, it is not wireless.

Turn everything off. Turn on cable modem, then turn on router and plug the WAN/Internet port of the router into the cable modem. Then plug the computer's ethernet port into one of the router's lan ports.

You should only need this if your wired connection won't reach from the router to the computer or you don't want cables all over the place.

This component is the equivalent of a cable.

It is impossible that your computer does not have an ethernet adaptor as they are built into the motherboard. All this powerline adaptor does, is eliminate your need for wireless and run the internet connection through your homes electrical circuit, extending it to a place in your home that has a really weak signal and giving you really great signal.

answer 3
The modem and router should be installed next to/near each other and should be directly connected via an ethernet cable and not over a Powerline Ethernet Adapter. The Powerline Ethernet Adapter should then be connected to the router. May not work if trying to go from modem through Powerline Ethernet Adapter to router as product is not really designed to work this way.

No. You need either an ethernet card that goes inside your computer, or an external ethernet adapter, usually a USB connecting adapter. On BB's site, look for "USB ethernet".
