I'm really interested in using powerline adapters in my home. The thing is, i would like to use more than a pair of adapters. If it's possible I would like to use 3 or more. Does anybody now which is the maximum number of adapters. My idea is to install one adapter near my ADSL and the others around my house. I would be like a client - server architecture.
Thanks in advance.

If you wish to have more than a pair powerline adapters you may do so, ie you may have 3, 4, 5 and so no (but there should be a limit to the numbers of adapters to plug in your house, office ie typically is around 16 up to 32 it depends the type, brand and make of these powerline adapters. Sometimes you may need to pair all of these plc adapters, so they can see each other (talk to each others).
Btw..if the adapters are plug into a different electrical phase (ie if you house or office is running on 3 phase) then the signal or throughput may be effected (drop).
Hope this answer your question.

It would be more suitable to use the same brands as you may have to do an update and you won't get into a problem making them work or sync for your network. One thing that you'll have to make sure of is that you are plugging the other adapter to the same electrical circuit that your router is plugged-in also otherwise you won't see the other powerline adapter which is connected to your router.

@Coolhockey12 Hi! Powerline adapters are sold by pair and not individually. For more information, you may check the Linksys store website: http://store.linksys.com/searchresults.htm?keywords=powerline.
