Thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
You can if you get the exact adapter again
So if you again purchase the exact netgear powerline 500 again you can also plug these in and use these in addition to the ones you already have, anywhere in your house.
If you mean you want to make additional ports from the one port on the Netgear, you can then use any network switch such as this one here
