maybe? But USB wifi adapters in my opinion are not reliable to game on as connections can drop on them.

you can do 3 things:
1) buy a wifi card from amazon or something

2) buy a usb adapter

3) get ethernet as it is better for gaming

 

I recommend b/g/n/ac cards for higher speeds if your router supports it

If it is compatible with your house/flat electric... it can sometimes be funky wiring. XD

it can be very hit and miss. i had a couple of issues due to a very bad router. 

 

also long distances can be an issue.

same can be said about wireless adapters. those can be very hit and miss aswell. the end result however is a lot better.

depends mostly on strength of wireless signal, all you want is smoothness in games not focus on the "speed" of data transfer.

not when you have 200mbps connection and you want to download something. 

 

also you get around the issues with walls and wifi with a powerline (if it works in your home) and you only really have to worry about wiredistance between you and the router.

Entirely dependent on the quality of the wiring though.  I've got an older house, and I could only get about 40% of the kit's rated performance in my case.

very much so. IF it works it is a whole lot better than wireless. 

 

well considering a lot of the powerlines have really high transfer rates and those are theoretical i doubt it is the bottleneck in a normal workload.

Is a usb adapter with 300 mbps enough for gaming?

it depends on range, your router, your bandwith. not just speed
