I am willing to bet if you look at https://gateway/status_interfaces.php 
  (Or http, and use whatever you use for a gateway IP) when you are 
wired, you are full duplex, and when you are powerline, you are half 
duplex.  Powerline adapters can do wierd things, and this may be it... 
If so, you can force full duplex via shell commands in the config.
