I have three Netcomm Powerline Adapters NP204.  Two adapters are working perfect.
Is possible I can use the third powerline adapter ? I try it press button but doesn't work.

Based on my concept, it looks ONLY working in a pair.

Per the user guide you can have up to 15 devices. You just need to configure the same Private Network Name on each one.

Powerline device can only communicate with other Powerline devices that use the same Private Network Name. The Private Network
Name can be changed manually using the Powerline Utility software on a computer with a Windows operating system (downloadable off
the NetComm website). When you use the software, you have to manually type the Private Network Name for the device. Another way
to change the Private Network Name is to use the Simple Connect button. Simple Connect automatically creates an encrypted Private
Network Name. It can also be used to reset the Private Network Name or to add a device into an existing Powerline network.
Note: Powerline devices from the Twin Pack are already configured to use a common Private Network Name unique for that pair and are ready to use.
