Homeplugs & Wireless

I have been sent a pair of Devalo DLan Homeplugs to use with a new piece of equipment Wink
Installing them was a breeze as in just plug both into the relevant sockets and connect by the supplied Ethernet cables to the router (NetGear DG 834G) and the equipment. All seems fine except that now the wireless from the router seems flaky with the laptop.
It's driving SWMBO mad but doesn't affect my PC as I'm wired. I thought it may just be coincidence but I keep losing connection on my HTC phone as well.
I've also noted that the portable radio, placed around 5ft from one of the Homeplugs, is suffering from interference.
My question is should the Homeplugs affect the radio and the wireless as described?

Decided to power down/up the router and it seems to have solved the issue.
Quite why that was needed I have no idea but fingers crossed... Cool

Is your radio DAB?
If so, that is likely the cause.

Nope. I think it was just coincidence.
Since re-powering there hasn't been a problem.

Most odd,
I love my Devolo 500 units, great coverage.
They have impacted my DAB coverage though, but not enough that makes it useless. That said, the fact I have the homeplugs means I don't even need the DAB now due to content availability Cheesy
