Can I add to existing powerline extender circuit?

Hi, I'm not very technical so thought best ask people who are. We have a powerline pass-through extender connected to our router and BT TV box. Can we add another powerline extender elsewhere in the house that will "feed" off this existing circuit? Would it matter what make the new extender is? Thank you for all assistance with this. S

Using this as an example - click here The new extender must be the same make. So the one pictured with the pass through socket is your master, connected to the router, the other is the slave (or remote) that gives extended coverage wherever it is located. It is possible to purchase individual individual slaves for this kit. We would need to know the make and model number of your existing kit to advise further.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. The extenders are branded Comtrend PowerGrid 902, there isn't any other info on them (I unplugged it!). They were provided by BT for the BT Vision box we had, which has since been upgraded but the extender plugs have not. IS this extra info useful?
