I presume you mean Power Lan Adapters.

Best thing to do is google for a manufacturer and ask the support desk.

There is no standard for it, like Ethernet protocol, so I suspect you will at least need same brand. same model probably not.

But I am just guessing.

Good luck

NO need to be the same maker or brand, but need the same protocol of home plug 1.0 or home plug av.
