Re: XAV101 powerline adapter compatibility

Those are some old power adapters. (2009)

they do use the Homeplug AV spec and will work with 200/500/1000/1200/2000mbps adapters.

The problem that you have won't be in getting devices to connect to them, it'll be the fact that the newer devices will all operate at the slower speeds of the XAV101's do. Powerline devices run at the slowest devices speeds.
