    How many powerline adapters can be in a home system? I seem to be running into a problem with my TP-Link adapters which seem to limit the number of adapters at 5. Is this correct?

    Thanks. In my case, 5 seems to be the limit.

    Interesting. This is good to know if you have a lot of PL adapters on your network.
