Default How many Powerline Ethernet Adapters on one network?

I have a XAVB1004 and an older model (85Mbps - 101 I think).
Every time I plug in the 101 it causes network - internet access issues throughout my network.

I was thinking that maybe there can only be one adapter per network or maybe its the fact that I have a 200Mbps and an 85Mbps on one network.

Any thoughts?

The best thing about Netgear's XE102 is its easy setup. You plug it into a wall socket or a power strip without surge protection; connect it to your PC, Mac, network printer, Xbox, or whatever; and you're done. You need at least two adapters to make a power-line network (one per network device), and you'll have to avoid surge protectors because they strip out network data as if it were a power surge. You'll also want to install Netgear's Powerline Encryption Utility, included in the XE102 package, to add security features and keep track of all of the power-line adapters on the network. The utility allows you to change the password for the adapter's 56-bit DES encryption code. Better yet, you can use the Powerline Encryption Utility to scan your network for other HomePlug-compliant devices and change all of their network passwords in one fell swoop. The Encryption Utility works with only Windows and is compatible with Windows 98 SE and later OSs.
