will the Netgear EX6130 connect to a powerline network

Hi

 

I already have powerline connecters set up in our house & I would like to add a WiFi access point at the far end of the house where the WiFi signal can't be seen.

 

If I plug in a EX6130 or 6150 extender will it pick up the network through the socket & electrical system or do I have to start again & buy the PLW1000 kit? 

 

I would rather not do this as I already have a perfectly good powerline setup its just the WiFi that I'm struggling with.

 

My current setup consists of a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 WiFi Router and a mixture of 500mbs & 200mbs Netgear powerline adapters. 

 

Hope someone can advise before I splash out on what might be the wrong thing.

 

Cheers....

Yes, you can connect either a EX6130 or EX6150 to a Powerline network.  Be sure to enable Access Point mode on the extender.
