    Has anyone had any first hand experience with this sort of thing? Im interested in rehashing my network (as ive just moved house) and am looking at this as a solution. Its not exactly cheap so i was wondering if it is really as good as ive been told.

    A bit of research and i think this would be my purchase of choice (once i find a cheaper supplier) Solwise Home Plug. The only downside i can see with this model is the security (and probably the interface).

    Any comments or suggestions/recommendations welcome :)

    You may want to search here - as I reported on Homeplug about 6 months ago.

    My conclusions were that it worked just fine, which gave the lie to comments about networks being difficult. :biggrin

    I still use it when I need a laptop connected when in the kitchen. I have the 'Mk1' version, nominaly 14Mbps, but, as with most of those, there is a turbo mode capable of 85Mbps. I get 50Mbps between two different ring-mains.

    IMHO the story about having to have just one ring is wrong, unless you have some sort of filtering built into your consumer box.
