Home Phoneline Network Router

I want to use phoneline rather than wireless to connect the 2 PCs in my home and share the cable internet modem.

I've found products that would do this (Linksys HPRO200 and Netgear RP334) but cannot find anyone who sells them in the UK despite the good reviews.

Does anyone know if they are available in UK? Also given the range/security/interference problems of wireless why is this technology not a more popular (UK) option?

PS I already have an Actiontec phoneline network which works well but unfortunately it is no longer supported nor is it compatible with the faster HPN-2 standard or with "internet connection sharing" on Windows.
