    I want to set up a power line network between 3 rooms of my house.. I live in an apartment building. I'm wondering if it would be safe to set up such a network in my apartment, and if my neighbours living in the same building could somehow be able to access my network (I don't want them to!).

    Are there any other pitfalls of a powerline network?

    Well, my experience with power line networking as been pretty poor, so I'm probably the wrong person to ask. My concern is reliability, I could never get good results in other than connections to the same circuit. Even the mix of equipment running on the line will affect the ability to communicate. Most power line network modules do offer encryption, so privacy is probably not as big a factor.
