    I have black bt powerline adaptors (PG9020).
    connected to my bt vision box and home hub.
    I have just purchased a smart blu ray player which needs to connect to the internet via ethernet cable.
    can anybody tell me is it possable to connect a ethernet cable splitter to the powerline adaptor and then connect to the blu ray player and the bt vision box at the same time.
    THANKS.

    I use a switch the same as this one
    TL-SG1005D - Welcome to TP-LINK
    Connect the bluray and Bt box via ethernet to the back of the unit in there own ports and then connect the out port to the powerline adapter.

    It needs a plug so it maybe easier just to get another powerline adapter instead. I connect 3 devices therefore the switch makes sense for me.

    I just had a look for your powerline adaptors and they have a plug passthrough therefore the switch will give you future expansion and is currently £13.89 online.

    I would not use splitters but do it properly with a switch.

    BTW splitters need to be used in pairs
