I definately dont think it is worth it. My friends and I in England have just purchased 100Mb LAN cards, dead easy to set up, as Windows 2000 picks them up straight away. The cards cost £10 a piece, CAT5 cables about £4.
So you get 10x the performance for a fraction of the cost. The 5 port internal 100Mb PCI hub was the dearest component at £35, but you only need 1 of those.

I have the Netgear Phoneline setup and it works great for me. Setup was snap, no network cables to deal with, no router or hub required, and I can share out my DSL connection among the networked PCs.
