I am using all the LAN ports on my Router and wondered if I can connect one of the TL-WPA8631P KIT Adapters to a gigabit switch that is on the LAN instead of directly into the Router as the instructions show? Hope this makes sense - the whole network thing is a bit confusing, at least to me.

@Boutros  Good day, 

 

You could connect the maub powerline adapter to a switch if your switch have Internet access.

Topology should be like below: 

Router --<Ethernet> ---- Gigabit switch ----<Ethernet > main powerline adapter ___< powerline >____ powerline extender.

@Solla-topee 

 

That is the exact topology I have and was hoping to use. 

 

Thank you for the prompt and simple to follow response - greatly appreciated
