Windows 7: Use different powerline adapters on same network?

Use different powerline adapters on same network?

Hi.

At the moment I'm using Netgear AV200 powerline adapters and need to add 2 more adapters to my setup.

Do I have to stick with Netgear or can I use another brand if they are both compliant with HomePlug AV1 standard and the same speed (200Mbps)?

Edit: Well apparently all powerline adapters are compatible as long as they are the same type (i.e. Homeplug AV or DS2), so I'll be getting more affordable pair of adapters...

You can use any brands with the protocol of Homeplug AV.
But you cann't use the the one of Homeplug 1.0.
