We're shifting house soon, very soon in fact:eek:
The room I want for an office does not have a phone jack and talking to the guy who wired the place, he said it would not be all that simple to to put a jack point in (concrete floor, dwangs etc). He suggested wireless as an option.

But, I wonder if ethernet over power would be better?

Anyone any thoughts or experience in this area? I use wireless g quite happily where I am, but for the main machine, would it be good enough?

As long as you can get the access point positioned somewhere that you get good signal strength in the office, I'd prefer wireless-n. My experiences with ethernet over power have mostly resulted in fairly low speeds and fairly high latency.
