Edit: Now shows as 54Mb/s. I don't know what caused the increase but I'm not complaining

On paper, the 20 m ethernet cable is the most restrictive part of your setup. But in reality, it may very well be the powerline adapter, as some are reported to be inefficient, and nowhere near the claimed thruput.
You can have a gigabit setup with gigabit router and switches and adapters, but if even one of your cables (either on PC or renderer) is 100 Mbps Cat5, that is going to be the absolute max your connection speed can reach. Most I have ever achieved with normal Cat 5 cable is 93 Mbps.
if you want to possibly increase your thruput, you could try adding a Cat 5e cable (notice the 'e'). I use them, a gigabit router and have my PS3 adapter set for 1 gigabit, and get a connection speed of 512 Mbps.
With your power adapter inline, you might not achieve as high a speed as me, but should increase none the less.
