Default Powerline Networking

I was just wondering if you guys knew if these powerline ethernet networks were actually worth the money. I have wireless already but it goes on and off, and putting ethernet cables in the walls is too much work. This is the one i was looking at too

Thanks!

And I was also wondering if this was a decent switch

because my wireless router does not have one on it.

Don't know anything about the powerline ethernet stuff.

The switch looks ok though. I've used all kinds of 4 & 8 port switches and haven't had one i would say to stay away from.

I never tried the ethernet version, but I used to run the phone line version back in the day (dial-up) and it worked pretty well. I wouldn't expect it to be a high performance device, though.
