    Hi
    I currently have this kit:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/D-Link-DHP-...8F6U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307026314&sr=8-1
    with one plugged into my router and one plugged into a computer on the other side of my house. I would like to add a third, so that one plugs into another computer somewhere else in my house. I was just wondering if it would be possible to add one of these:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/D-Link-Powe...LX76/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1307026380&sr=8-2
    and for the third homeplug adapter to use the first one (plugged into the router) like the second one?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I've never used one of these. But I would seriously recommend you run Ethernet cables. They are cheap and they are very fast compared to anything else.

    I believe even 802.11n would beat power line networks and be cheaper.
