Windows 7: Wireless and powerline combine?

Wireless and powerline combine?


I am currently in a house where i am unable to run a physical connection to my router so i connected my PC via a PCI wireless (G) card but that has disappointed with a limit of about 2mbps for data transfer,

i then purchased a T(TLPA 101) P-link powerline starter kit (advertised as 85mps) bur for some reason it is only letting me shift data to and from my 'NAS' at about 900kbps (not sure if this is because of my old wiring or my cheap powerline purchase )

anyway i want to combine the two conenections to get a boost in my network speed, is this possible?

failing that is there a way to get my powerline adapter to go faster?

any tips would be of help!
