Default Powerline routers - any good?

I haven't tried the powerline 'wifi substitute' modem router type yet (the kind that send the data over your mains electric wiring to remote PCs, not via wifi). But - I heard they may not work well if the ring main the remote PC is on is on a different breaker to the one the main unit is on.

These units would be excellent for getting router connectivity out to a remote PC on another floor - but not if this problem is real.

Anyone know?
