my question is : if i want to add another adapter, do i need to buy only the same model or can i use other powerline adapters from other manufacteurers/brands?

  1. They generally work together. Look at the specification they generally say they are IEEE 1901 or 1905 compatible.

    It is not recommended to run more than 2 devices it degrades the performance a lot. It is possible with careful setup to run 4 as 2 different links but it reduces the total bandwidth on both pair.
  2. For BEST results, both wall outlets should be on the same circuit breaker panel (though this may not be absolutely required) . This is not usually addressed in product manuals or quick start guides. In my experience it can be factor of intermittent connectivity and distance range issues.

    Also, do NOT connect into a power strip, extension cord, uninterrupted power supply (UPS), or surge protector. This is usually advised in user manuals.
