It should work, but the transceiver doesn't enter into it. The
computer interface sends the commands directly over the power line
where they are received by the modules controlling the lights.
I assume you're running X10's Activehome program. Verify that you can
control the individual living room lights directly from the computer
by clicking the on/off button on one of the lamp module icons. If
that won't work, it may be that your computer interface is on a different
power line phase from the modules, or your computer may be generating
enough line noise that the signal from the interface is lost. You can
try plugging the computer interface into a long extension cord and
plugging the extension cords into a socket in a different room or
rooms to see if that works.
