Is Homeplug networking safe for a knob-and-tube electrical system?

I have a beautiful old home but, the walls are thick and WiFi signal dies easily. Is a Homeplug system safe for my old home? I am hoping to convert our current upstairs router into an access point/repeater for the downstairs router via DD-WRT. The issue is that the upstairs WiFi is on the 3rd floor and the downstairs in on the 1st and I will not be stringing an Ethernet cable through the walls.

Home plug shouldn't put any stress on the wires, but if you have knob and tube, it's probably suceptible to interference and I wouldn't expect great speeds from it.
