Can you put an extender on another extender (same extenders)

Asked by: Jasond
These aren't designed to be used in a chain, so we couldn't guarantee stable signal if used in this manner. If you have multiple areas of low or no signal we would recommend powerline adapters as a more adaptable solution: http://www.maplin.co.uk/c/computing-andoffice/networking#Category:Powerline&sort=&page=1&productsPerPage=12
