Hello, I am moving my PC to a new room, but the room only has two wall socket. One of which is being used for the refrigerator and the other is usually left for the AC. I need to have a wired connection for my PC, so I plan on using a powerline adapter like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127587
but my question is since powerline adapter don't work well with power strips but would it work with this: http://www.amazon.com/GE-Grounded-6-Outlet-Tap-54947/dp/B00006IBFA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1447294538&sr=8-2&keywords=wall+outlet+extender
Any help would be appreciated.

The problem is that I live in an apartment and the refrigerator is in the hallway where there is no power outlet nearby and when we first moved in it was connected to a power strip that comes from the bedroom and it only has one outlet open. So is there another way for me to connect an ethernet cable to my PC. Well, to be clear the powerline adapter will be connected to my gigabyte switch.

I'm just saying...the power surges from a fridge or AC unit will probably screw up the powerline signal.
You can try it if you want.

But I doubt anyone could recommend Unit A over Unit B in your particular instance.
Try it.

But don't assume it will work well.
