yes, you can do that.
about how to pair them, you can do this, pair A and B first. Then pair B or A with C. last C or A or B and D. Each time pair two devices.

I had the same situation, with 2 pairs of TP-Link PA2010P and two TP-Link PA4010. I didn't get too much info about how adapters works, but now I know I made a mistake adding to my router both TP-Link PA2010P and TP-Link PA4010.

As I have three computers to connect, Then I will remove the old TP-Link PA2010P from the router and follow your advices pairing all 3 of them.
Thank you.

Interesting, thanks!  I'm curious:

 

1) If we introduce a single PA2010 (AV200) into a network of PA4010 (AV600), would the speed between every node drop to 200 Mbps or just between the PA2010 and any other node (leaving any pair of PA4010s at 600 Mbps bilaterally)?  Could the pairing order affect this (that is, might speed only be reduced between the AV200 and the particular AV400 it was manually paired with in an existing network of at least 3 AV600)?

 

2) If we introduce a single PA2010 into a network of PA4010, would the PA2010 reintroduce the security risk with respect to the 2016 MAC -> Password (PWD or DAK) security fix? Could the pairing order affect this?

 

Thank you.

I believe I've figured my own second question about security. I'd still be interested to hear back about speeds from anyone who's tried, though. As for security, it looks like the AV200 (at least with original or pre-2016 firmware) would still be vulnerable to attack by it's being too easily co-opted into an attacker's network, but this should be significantly more difficult for the AV600 with 2016 or later firmware. Thus, for my purposes, I'd consider using the AV200 for a special-purpose printer of the like, but not for anything with significant data access. My understanding is that if the AV200 were compromised, it would no longer be part of the AV600 network. That's not to say that the AV200 should ever be trusted again without at least a firmware refresh (which, unfortunately, isn't easy since the US support site provides only an incompatible EU firmware at the moment).

@Kevin SG 

Hello. Sorry for bumping an old topic but my question is related so I wanted to keep on here. Here is my question:

 

I've got 1 piece of TP-PA2010 which I bought in 2013. The other piece was lost several years ago, so I can't use it for years.

 

Recently I've found a seller who sells 1 piece of TP-PA4010 at a suitable price.

 

If I buy that 1 piece of TP-PA4010, does it work / communicate with the TP-PA2010 ?

@Thinkpadder 

Good day.

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

All our powerline adapters are compatible with each other.

So normally they should work together with each other.

Since it was the second hand product, please make sure warranty service is included if they failed to work;

 

Thanks a lot.

@Solla-topee thank you for the answer. That was what I expecting. Those units must have been compatible across different models and speeds. Now I can confidently buy that one piece.
