Unless you live in a Faraday cage the wireless portion of your network will more than likely transmit beyond the confines of your dwelling. Be sure to use SSL/TLS when sending sensitive info such as passwords, credit card numbers, and any other data you wouldn't send on a postcard.

    No, I don't think the original poster was talking about the wireless...he was refering to the power line connection. Wouldn't someone who is on the same power grid (and relatively close to the home) possibly be able to access you connection? Would they be able to access the data being transmitted because they use current from the same line?

      If you are on the same side of the transformer it is a possibility.

      Yes that is the question. The wireless is to expensive if I want to reach his house.
