I currently have a pair of NETGEAR XAVB2001-100NAS Up to 200Mbps Powerline AV 200 Adapters. Can I just add a third unit upstairs (like, for example) and all three ports will have connectivity to each other?

Or do these guys work in pairs only?

Are you using them with a switch/router? – Tog May 4 '11 at 7:34
Yes. Both are plugged into separate routers. – ConfusedNoob May 5 '11 at 5:17

So, I went and bought two more... and... it works a treat!

Shame the manufacturers don't make this clearer. I bet a lot of people simply don't realise this is even possible.

Was wondering this very question as well. Thanks for the answer! – Mart Aug 1 '12 at 14:11

Can't vouch for Netgear but I have D-link powerline and three of the plugged in, works like a charm.
