I live in what most would consider a "bed sit" and am currently sharing wireless internet with my friend who lives downstairs. The signal is intermittent and we have tried everything sensible to increase the signal quality.
The building is old, and uses coin meters for each occupant for electricity. I understand that powerline technology could transmit the signal throughout the entire building, and that it supports encryption and network names to limit rogue access.
Is this correct, or will powerline not route past the meters?
