So I'm moving in with 4 internet users and a wireless connection is the only way as the router is downstairs in the hallway. My question is would there be a difference with 1 reciever connecting to 4 wireless connections or using 2 recievers to connect to 2 wireless connections each? Would this reduce lag if a person is downloading etc or will the performance be the same.

What do you mean by "reciever"? Wireless Access Point?

No, it will not reduce lag because at the end of the day, you will be using the same internet connection so even if you have 2 access points and everyone is using it at the same, the data may be restricted by the internet plan.

Note that you can get lag if either the downstream OR the upstream is being used to the fullest. In my experience, it's the upstream that gets the beating, especially if you have someone using file sharing programs.

And to address your title, the powerline to ethernet can be a hit and miss, especially if the adapters are not on the same circuit.
