Powerine ethernet that bad??

Last Modified: 2012-08-30
i just bought a new home and the second floor bedrooms are not wired for ethernet.
so i decided to purchase netgear powerline av+ 200 ultra adapter kit. they works great in the beginning but lately they have been performing poorly. i get multiple time outs when pinging the router downstairs. when i download my daily podcast from itunes,  the internet connection just drops and when i stop downloading it comes back up. i seem to get a more stable connection on the wifi than the powerline ethernet. has anyon experiencing this problem before? my home was built in 1994 and the electrical wiring is not that old.
