How It Works
1. Simply connect the PowerLine adapter to your router's Ethernet port and plug it into a power outlet to turn every other outlet in your home into a possible network connection.
2. Plug the wireless extender into an outlet in a different part of your home to extend your Wi-Fi network to the hard-to-reach areas of your home like upstairs bedrooms, basements and outdoor patios.

There are a ton of other reviews here on it's functionality, so I won't get into that -- I'm posting something different so my peers here on AMZ are aware of what they are truly purchasing.
I purchased this at the beginning of the year, and did quite a bit of research. The page on D-Link's own site for this kit advises you can "Extend your Powerline network by adding up to 6 adapters in total."
I too initially bought this to extend to my garage. We have since moved, and I need an adapter in my garage as well as the second floor. Ok, I thought, I'll just grab another adapter.
Was I in for a bug surprise. Searching Amazon brought no luck. No one sells it. I then went to the D-Link website, and the place to buy an extra receiver is nowhere to be found. In fact, the only place I was able to find the receiver on a page as a lone product was D-Link's UK site, and it's "not available for purchase." For your reference, the reciever alone is part/model # DHP-W310AV.
I wrote to D-Link, wondering why it was impossible for me to buy an extra receiver for a product that was clearly advertised as something I could add "6 adapters" to. The actual response I got was baffling: "I don’t see where you can purchase the Wireless extender by itself, I suggest that you google the part number, maybe you can find it that way."
Seriously? Google the part number? How is this an official response from the company who actually manufactures and sells the product, and advertises it's ability to add 6 other adapters as a benefit??
Not if you can't buy one. I refuse to keep buying the entire kits, spending much more money than I need, to have a bunch of base adapters in a drawer somewhere. This is an unacceptable business practice. If you advertise you can extend the network by adding adapters -- actually SELL the adapters. Obviousl, I'm livid, but want to be sure no one runs into the same frustrating and stressful issue I have.

UPDATE: It drops the sync, and I have to keep bringing it back to the same room as the router to re-sync before I can bring it downstairs again. Annoying.
UPDATE: I changed the location to another outlet downstairs and now it has stayed in sync with the base unit and I've had great wifi for several weeks.
Then it occurred to me to try a different outlet for the head end unit. And when I finally found an unused outlet behind a bookcase I plugged it in and got an almost instant connection in the garage.
It turns out that in all the previous attempts I had used an outlet with a UPS in the other plug. Apparently simply being on the same outlet with a UPS is enough to degrade/prevent operation. Note I said same outlet, NOT plugged into the UPS. I was fairly certain that was never going to work so I never even tried that but it didn't occur to me that just on the same outlet circuit would drag it down enough to prevent operation. But It did and the documentation doesn't warn about that.
It's been running for about 24 hours now and thus far over a million packets have moved on the powerline link with ZERO dropped packets so far.
The lesson here is stay away from a UPS and it appears to work great.
The only true con I have found... you cannot manually force it to use a particular channel. It says it "adapts" to find the best channel... it has been stuck on channel 1 for two days when obviously there are clearer channels.
