I successfully use WiFi networking at home.  It was been working  
great except when the microwave is on or someone is using our  
cordless telephone.  I had it at 802.11b and it was a bit jumpy  
(until I lowered the quality).  When I moved to 802.11g, everything  
was great (as long as no phone or microwave).  This electric wire  
solution looks cool though.
