Hello,
I had connected my pc to my router via powerline, and the wifi signal disappeared when I started to use this connection. When I unplug the powerline's lan cable and restart the router, the wifi go back. When I use simple lan cable connection between the router and my pc, the wifi works fine. (When I connect the powerlink adapter to modem its signal become unstable, this is why I am trying to connect it to the router).
So the question is how could i use the router's lan port without the wifi being shut down?
My router is a tp-link tl-wr1043nd,
the powerline adapter is a tp-link AV600 TL-PA4010 kit,
(my pc's os is windows 10)

ISP ---> Modem ---> Router--->Powerline ---> PC = Wireless dissappears

ISP ---> Modem --->Router ---> PC = Wireless works.

ISP ---> Modem ---> Powerline adapter ---> Router ---> PC = Unstable? Wireless unstable or network unstable?

Correct the above line diagrams as necessary.

Make and model modem?

Does the following link match your powerline adapter kit?

https://www.tp-link.com/us/service-provider/powerline-adapter/tl-pa4010-kit/

When you look at the adapter's LED lights (power, powerline, ethernet) using the above connections what LED's are lit or unlit.

Is the following PDF the matching User Guide for your powerline adapter kit?

Yes it was unclear, the third one is ISP - Modem - Powerline - PC = in this case the powerline network unstable, and generally worse than connecting to the router.

Nevertheless, I have found a solution, if I shut down the TpPLC Utility (the one for the Powerlink adapters) both the wifi and the Powerlink connection through router work fine.
