Homeplug Systems - The best?
Currently I have two dLan Duo homeplugs in the house connecting my mac to my wireless/adsl router as the router is the other side of the house. These are capable of a 14Mbit connection through the sockets.
Is this the best was to do things or are there better homeplug systems out there that work faster?
Or am I better moving my Mac closer so the wireless works?
What do you guys do?

I have used some Netgear ones in a friends house and I am fairly sure it was faster than 14 in speed, the plugs themselves are these - PowerLine Wall-Plugged Switch - XE104 you can get ones that are not built in switches as well. Not cheap they work out at about £90 for a pair usually but seem to be good.

Thanks John - taken a look and they look pretty good spec. There is also a 14Mbit version, but as you rightly pointed out the XE104 is 85Mbit - faster than wireless.
Ive put my Mac onto wireless at the moment and it seems a lot more stable than when I first had it. I remember my Mac always loosing wireless signal every now and again which is why I took it over to homeplug.
