Model: Deco P9  
Hardware Version: V1

Is there any detrimental effect to powerline backhaul if I plug the P9 units into a surge protector strip, extension cord, etc as opposed to plugging them diorectly into the wall outlet?

The P9 will probably not utilize the powerline backhaul and just stick with the Wi-Fi backhaul due to the surge protector. So they will pretty much work as if they were M5s.

@PDXJD I couldn't find the link again, but when I was researching this I found an article show technical electrical things I kind of understand that showed how surge suppressors can block the frequency that powerline runs at, and I found articles that said it might work but performance would be impacted to varying degrees.  It sounds like it depends on how a particular surge suppressor works.  I had a small APC battery backup surge suppressor and a heavy-duty one I took from a datacenter we shut down and the P9 wouldn't work on either of them.  I'm in an older house/apartment so I'm plugged straight into the wall to get maximum performance until I can get the landlord to let me make some holes in the floor to run ethernet through the basement.
