Homplug adapters can use 2/3 routers?

Specs: Windows 7
My house is 3 stories built with a solid concrete structure. I want internet access on all 3 floors. I saw Netgear Powerline AV Adapters(homeplugs).

On the 1st floor will be my modem wc is connected to my router wc is then connected to the Netgear Powerline Adapter on the wall socket. My question is can I connect a second router on the 2nd floor to the Netgear Powerline Adapter, and also another adapter on the 3rd floor with with another router connected to it so that all 3 floors have no dead spots? Or do these network adapters have to connect to to the internet using ethernet cable?

you would connect the other two routers not by their wan ports but by their lan ports. you disable dhcp serving on them and you assign them a ip addess so you can manage them. dhcp from the first router flows thru these others to give everything internet access

I have heard raves as well as rants with these plug adapters. Alot depends on the wiring.

These floors can not have their own electrical panels. All must be to one electrical panel or they won't work.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Thanks @wanderer for your input!

Fortunately my house wiring are all connected to 1 electrical panel. However I live in the Philippines and we use 220volts in our sockets. Would that hinder the data transfers if I connect the homeplug to a converter then connect that converter to the socket?
