Anyone know if Powerline Network products can be used to extend a network as detailed further below?

I have a few situations where wireless is not a good option and have been interested in the newer 500MB Powerline options (ie D-Link). I know the 'standard' powerline products require a device at the source (router) and then one for each connected device but what I would like is to simply connect two network segments using powerline devices.

ie: Network segment 1 TO hub/switch TO Powerline adapter TO Powerline adapter TO hub/switch TO Network segment 2

Notes
- Distance is max 200-250ft
- Throughput requirements not high; only need to provide internet to a max of 3-4 light usage systems
- Connection to same electrical circuit is available

Any ideas or help on this?
