Re: Depends on house structure...

With modern housebuilding techniques, as a colleague recently discovered, what used to be a stud and plasterboard wall is now stud and plasterboard around a foiled foam core of e.g. Kingspan, with a mylar vapour barrier tacked across it all for good measure. As soon as you put an earthed copper pipe through it, you get an instant RF impermeable wall. Or at least heavily attenuated in the interesting and useful wavelengths.

Powerline is the way to go for anyone not savvy enough to have specc'd a bit of Cat6A running between the various compartments of the house.
