I have been asked to give my opinion as a Network Security Admin on this product: http://www.cyberguys...&search=&child=

I have never seen this before but believe that, there has to be tons of interference to make this a smart choice. I am looking for opinions / experieneces with similar products.

i've never used those "ethernet over electrical" systems before but i've seen them...i've been told they work great and you don't have to run more cables..i would think that as long as it's set up correctly it would be as secure as a standard cat5 network...if not slightly more secure in that soemone couldn't just roam around your house and find an ethernet port to plug into...i mostly understand how it works...and it sounds like a correct implementation...of course...the only way that i can think of it working...is that all traffic is sent via broadcast...which may cause collisions..but i'm sure they worked that out during testing
