Will powerline work across multiple phases and circuits?

Yes. First-generation powerline gear worked only on conducted signals. So it would not work across the two phases present in most U.S. homes that have 220V / 240V split-phase service. But current-generation adapters work on both conducted and radiated signals, and work across phases just fine. for more information.

In many cases, mine included, a MoCA adapter will provide more throughput, less packet drops, and a higher level of consistency (and not be affected when someone turns on the vacuum :-) It's obviously only ideal if your house has Coax already run).
