    Personally, I'd forget power line networking. The environment is very noisy, and there are many sources if interference on the power lines.

    there are a few Bridge products like that out there... I set one up and was able to get 11MBs, but if I pluged one of the units into a "powerstrip" it dropped to 4. most likely due to the power strip being a piece of 1.99 K-mart garbage.

    Don't waste your money on the electrical networking stuff. The Cons outweigh the Pros.

    powerline networking's success depend on the circuitry of the house or of the building. If there are several circuit breakers or power filters, it's not recommended
