Can you have more than one wireless-N Extender

Hi,

Have a large old house with several wireless dead spots due to metre thick walls.

Is it possible to have one XAV2101 and several wireless extenders (XAVN2001) connected to it?

Thanks

The question is, though, where can you buy just the XAVN2001 instead of XAVBN2001 kits...

Yes, but I don't need the ethernet bridge (XAV2001) I only need the wireless extender... what are my options?

yerh, having the same problem Alives. Want 5 extenders for quite a large house with very thick walls. So far the only place i've found that sell just the extender it actually costs more than buying the kit - which is kind of forcing me to at least look at another manufacturer :/

Came here to say I am doing the same. This is ridiculous. I hope NetGear gets their act together soon.

What other manufactureers have you all had luck with.

I see one rom D-Link and one from TP Link.

Not sure why Netgear wont just sell the XAVN2001 by itself - I would buy 3 of them immediately.
