    Hey guys, I was looking around the internet today and stumbled acrosss this It is pretty interesting basically you can make a network out of out your existing power lines of your house. If I understand it correctly all you need is a bridge they sell which connects to your router. It can be used with cable or dsl and offers transfer up to 14mbps. Anybody heard of this? is it worthwhile? thanks.

    I don't have it myself but I have friend who does. It works great if you don't mind the speed. I've heard some people claim inference with phones and such but my friend hasn't had any problems. I think one thing that could effect it though is the age of the wiring in your house, not sure though.
