First question - I want to say no but I'm not 100% on that

 

Second question - yes in that they still make them but not really. If every house had modern wiring that was installed the correct way then powerline would have taken off like a rocket but not all houses are and it didn't. 

 

What is it you are trying to do?


Hope this helps thumbup.gif

Hi, Only just seen your enquiry.

 

In answer to your first query, yes you can, as you know you have to initially purchase a starter pair but from there you can add addition single ones ( of the same make etc.. ). 

 

Alternatively you could add a wireless extender to your system and boost your signal from the router.

 

My personal preference is the powerline,I have them throughout my home, even to the television....no problems.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards

Tony.
