Dear Sir,

Feasibility of your project greatly depends on what your wireless jack extender actually does. It looks pretty much like you have a telephone line extender, which isn't suitable for Ethernet networking at all. I'm not sure whether or not it can be used for connecting HomePNA adapters. Please check with the wireless extender vendor.

There is no pin layout for the RJ11-to-RJ45 adapter without knowing what application it will be used for.
