Networking using the Mains wiring

I know that this subject has been on this and the comsumer watch forum before, but time goes by... A client asked me today if he could have such a system as he had just read an article on the subject (somewhere) and thought it looked like a good idea. (His wife is actively opposing a mobile phone mast at the moment, so as you can imagine, a wireless network is out of the question !!!).
So does anyone have ANY experience of a network system which uses the mains wiring to carry the signals?

Seems a possibility, not had any experience of this though. click here

I assume a signal is passed through the earth wires,which seems logical.

It is worth checking out the Linksys website as they have a lot of interesting information on this subject. click here.

I spotted in PC World a kit for networking through the mains; it was reasonably cheap, though I forget the exact price, but on the packaging it stated that it would not work with a surge protector. Hope this snippet of info is of use.

Could also have problems with other units starting up (Fridges, Pumps Ect) on the same phase, due to the high current surges generated.

Would need some form of isolation as well (Transformer or Optical).
