I believe wired always trumps wireless, but I don't know about the home plugs.
I'm sure someone here will know though.

the HomePlug system which uses the elctrical wiring in your can support data speeds of upto 85mbps whereas ethernet can support upto 100mbps but i seriously doubt u'd notice any difference in speed and it is a cheap alternative. one thing to bear in mind tho is (i think) the plugs have to be on the same ring main.
