    I cant even get them to talk through the same distribution board as we have had a extension put on the house, never mind next door :P. Prob opt for the cheaper ones and just been in to currys (not a currys pc world) and they are £25 instead of £20 .

    Have you checked to see if you can reserve it on line to collect at your branch. We had to drive to Kidderminster to get our as there was no stock in Worcester or the surrounds.

    I manage a good powerline connection out to my 'man cave', so any connection has to go through two boards and an additional breaker. There is a (slim) possibility that your main board is split using different phases. It would be unusual (but not unheard of) and if that is the case you will have problems.

    I can confirm that with the on networks powerline adapters they work across a distribution board which means they work in the extension happy days
