Internet via mains supply??

I'm moving house very soon and don't want to install hundreds of meters of cables for my 2 desktops + 2 lappys so I'm contemplating in buying the Dynamode HOMEPLG-E85(TWIN) / Bridge / Homeplug Twin Pack apparently with this plugged to the electrical supply you get internet access, anyone have one of this?.

Not that product, but I did use the technology a few years back and replaced it with WiFi G. I had spotty results. They say it is much better now and the unit you referenced seems to address many of the weak areas I encountered.

A friend has used a similar product with great success. (Connecting from router at one end of the house to computer at the other, when wireless connection wouldn't quite make it.)

You can now get faster products as well.

I did try using similar products about a year ago, with little success.
The transfer rate was varying a lot, with connection being impossible at some moments.

It may be due to the electric wiring in my appartment, although the appartment was built just 2 years ago.

I might try again in 2 months, when I have more free time in between jobs.


Short summary is :
they are great if they work for you, but it's not guaranteed

We didn't have to use it, we just put cables everywhere (yes, several hundred meters in fact...)

I'm still happy we did it, every room has at least 2, but most likely 6 connections. And then there's the wifi which I generally use for my laptop.

Next house / appartment we get, I plan to have network access in all the rooms.
At least if it's a new one we build or an old one we modify.
