Don't these particular units require Windows in order to set them up? 
Obviously they work fine with Linux, but from what I read about the 
Solwise products, the configuration program only runs in Windows.

The Devolo MicroLink dLAN range of PowerLine products definitely come 
with Linux and OSX configuration utilities (as well as Windows), 
although they seem to be a bit more pricey that the Solwise range. 
Amazon sells the Devolo starter kit (which contains two PowerLine 
network adapters) for £87.35
