Does anyone have experiencing using power-line networking? I have a LinkSys Router(wired), and I was going to replace it with a wireless set-up. I noticed that there was the option of using power-line networking. I would assume I could connect the Linksys router to the power line network and extend it to another floor in my house without running cable. Any advice?

This is rather old obsolete technology and uses hardware specially designed for it.
So dont be plugging in that Linky just yet LOL.

The hardware was fairly exspensive and was prone to poor thru put and was at the mercy of the condition of the wireing being used. old buildings seldom had good wireing and the further away you tried to go signal degradation was compounded epoentially.

Generally was used only in local LAN environments within one building or closely related buildings. Very problematic and unreliable.
