While I'm awake and fretting

If you were one half of a powerline network adaptor, and I'd unplugged you from the spare room and moved the desktop computer from there to my living room because the spare room was being visited by kittens, where would you be?

For the purpose of this hypothetical, assume that while it was in the living room, the desktop was plugged directly into the router with ethernet cable, so I didn't need you for that period.

The kittens concluded their visit back at the start of January, and I want to set my computer back up in the spare room.

Places I have already looked:
- the storage seat in the living room on which the desktop was set up
- on top of and under the armchair next to the storage seat
- the desk in the spare room where the desktop is supposed to live
- the little filing cabinet next to the desk, in particular the bottom drawer full of various sizes and types of cables
- the bookshelf on the other side of the desk

Note that you could still be in any of those places, because technology-hiding gremlins.

Unfortunately, kittens.

Possibly the freezer, or that little cupboard in the laundry you keep forgetting existed, or in a pocket, or inside the Roomba, or next to the wine glasses. One place you would absolutely definitely not be is inside a labelled Ziplock bag in the place where the cableybits are kept.
