[vox] Home Plug Network?

I've been wanting to get DSL, and network two computers to share the DSL 
connection.  Given the location of computers, networking by Ethernet cabling 
is not practical.  For that reason I've been thinking of a wireless network.

But I've just read a statement from a person who works for a company that 
sells hardware for both wireless and home plug networks.  He says that they 
hardly get any tech support questions from the people buying home plug gear.  
And as long as you're not in an apartment, it seems as though security is 
better with home plug as opposed to wireless.  While home plug is slower than 
wireless (until later this year) it is still faster than the DSL connection 
itself, and so speed is not really a consideration.

Does anyone here have any thoughts on choosing between a wireless network and 
a home plug network?

Thank you.
